Healthcare Industry’s Leading Challenge — Unprotected PHI

If the healthcare industry received a diagnosis, it would be: Unprotected Patient PHI.

Despite a number of solutions designed to keep patient PHI private and compliant, a growing number of breach headlines and HIPAA penalties indicate that many healthcare organizations have not yet solved this problem.

“Healthcare industry experiences a 70% increase in data breaches between 2010 and 2017.”

– Journal of the American Medical Association

24% of all data breaches affected healthcare organizations – more than any other industry”

– 2018 Verizon Data Breach Investigation Report

“Over 41% of breaches are human error with emails containing PHI.”

– Beazley Breach Insights Healthcare report

Healthcare Industry Struggles with Data Security Risks

Without a viable data security solution, healthcare organizations struggle with a number of patient data security and compliance challenges including:

  • High risk of stolen or lost patient data
  • High penalties for HIPAA noncompliance
  • Inefficient care coordination with other providers
  • Inferior treatment outcomes
  • Loss of patient trust and confidence
  • High risk of reputational damage
