The increasingly digital healthcare landscape is presenting new challenges for health care professionals across the industry. Understanding how to protect your practice has become an essential part of maintaining your hard-earned reputation.
It’s essential for IOA members to take cyber-security protection seriously. If you already have protections in place, continuing education is a fundamental part of protecting yourself against data breaches and HIPAA violations. With the innovation and implementation of EHR systems, it’s important to recognize the risks storing this data has and how the intersection of cyber-security and HIPAA compliance can protect you.
Unsure where to begin? There are several different components to cyber-security that can help protect your practice and your health care data. Some of the most effective things you can start doing right now include:
• Data encryption
• Email encryption
• Security awareness training
