Enabling GDPR Compliant Digital Workflows for Healthcare Providers

How to Improve Care and Boost Patient Engagement with a Data-Centric, User-First Approach to Security

Mirroring remote workforce trends in other industries, digital health workflows allow distributed healthcare provider teams to more easily coordinate care and interact with their patients, leading to better outcomes. But these trends also bring significant risks to patient confidentiality. Multi-cloud environments that support digital care delivery leave protected health information (PHI) at risk of exposure, raising concerns regarding patient confidentiality and compliance.

The demands of modern healthcare organizations reveal the inadequacies of traditional approaches to protecting data throughout the course of care. This guide offers a close look at a fictional scenario based on real healthcare use cases. It identifies key pain points associated with traditional data protection methods and uncovers how data-centric, user-first protections support rapid care delivery to optimize outcomes and keep patient data confidential and compliant.

What You’ll Learn:

  • How advances in modern medical technology and information systems have transformed the healthcare industry, including GDPR compliance.
  • How traditional approaches to protecting PHI tend to interfere with care delivery, reduce patient engagement, and can adversely impact outcomes.
  • How Virtru’s data-centric, user-first protections empower care providers, patients, and healthcare staff to securely share patient PHI, coordinate care, and ultimately improve care outcomes.
