Resolving to make your clinic safe, secure, and compliant this year is critical. Healthcare data is an invaluable asset that must be handled with care. In 2018, we saw how data breaches cause significant financial damage, disruption of business operations, and harm to clinic reputations – and we don’t see that changing in 2019. To mitigate risk and help avoid costly breaches in the year ahead, here are three New Year’s resolutions that will protect your practice in 2019:
“We’ve seen an acceleration of [patients] running out of patience with the challenges they have engaging with the system,”saysDavidBetts. As a result, “coming to the fore is the need for a much more seamless, digitally enabled, customer-oriented experience of care.”Show patients you’re listening with Brightsquid Secure-Mail, a digital communication tool that allows you to share Protected Health Information between practices and patients faster, easier, and more compliant than ever before.
How can your clinic best defend against the new generation of attacks?The short answer is: you can’t. According to CDW’s Cybersecurity Insight Report, “companies of all sizes must adopt a proactive approach that assesses and minimizes threats in advance while mitigating negative effects when a data breach does happen.”
