Recent cyberattacks on political organizations in the United States have highlighted threats that all institutions face regarding the security of confidential information. This is nowhere more significant than in the healthcare industry, as highlighted in PolicyMedical CEO Saud Juman’s recent article ‘Recent breaches of online data show need for highest level of BAA security ’ published December 16th on DOTmed’s HealthCareBusiness (HCB) Daily News.
In the article, Saud points out that “All health providers must maintain constant vigilance in protecting the most intimate information that exists regarding the lives of their patients, clients, and staff. Each and every organization has to build sophisticated firewalls against the prospect of breaches and leaks. But this is only the first step.”
He goes on to explain that the old days of keeping paper records or spreadsheets just listing BAAs and when they were signed will no longer suffice, but thankfully, there’s technology available to provide firewalls against PHI loss and the means to track leaks within systems and across organizational boundaries.
