Covered entities and business associates face the daily challenge of providing high-quality services while complying with an increasingly complex security threat landscape and regulatory environment. Healthcare data breaches and cyberattacks are constantly making headlines, and the following recent statistics emphasize the massive cyber target that the healthcare industry has become:
- One in three healthcare records is compromised.
- Ransomware attacks against healthcare organizations continue to rise at an alarming rate.
- Healthcare records have decreased in value on the black market due to the sheer number of available records.
Security and Compliance Challenges in the Healthcare Industry
In addition to Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) compliance, covered entities and business associates must comply with other industry regulations such as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). With this maze of sensitive information floating throughout an organization, the risks are unprecedented, ultimately making healthcare information technology (IT) systems a top target for attackers.
The good news is that Compass IT Compliance has a suite of solutions to help hospitals, nursing homes, telemedicine providers, insurers, pharmaceuticals companies, clinics, dentists, and all other healthcare organizations comply with HIPAA and HITECH regulations, secure their patient's data, and get back to what they do best — treating patients and saving lives.
