Growing volumes of patient data, increased risk
Healthcare providers hold massive amounts of medical and personal information on their Email and file databases, there is a constant need to address all aspects of potential risks to assure high compliance and privacy as well as minimise the risk to their business, reputation, and patient population.
With patient data so plentiful, the threat of malicious activity has never been greater. Neglect to access and provide visibility into this data and you’ll be facing significant financial penalties – and lasting reputation damage.
Organisations must establish appropriate retention and destruction schedules to ensure the availability of timely, relevant data and information for patient care purposes; to meet federal, state, and local legal requirements; and to reduce the risk of legal discovery.
Healthcare organisations are required to prove to regulatory bodies that data is replicated, stored in a tamper-proof database and reachable over extended periods of time.
