If you own or manage a doctor’s office or healthcare organization, you know how sensitive patient data needs to be protected. Common medical records often include names, addresses, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, and credit card numbers. Needless to say, if this information was ever breached, then it can cause significant problems for your medical business.
How bad can it get?
Hackers can use medical data to steal patients’ money or commit identity theft. Medical offices have a legal responsibility to keep their patients’ data safe. They are bound by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA): if this information is stolen, a slew of fines and lawsuits can ensue.
Large hospitals often have an in-house IT department to deal with all their computer and compliance needs, but most doctor’s offices and medical practices do not have the resources to hire a full-time IT staff.
