Healthcare Cybersecurity is a continual growing concern with hacking, IT security incidents and data beaches non only with the provider’s electronic health record but also with the multitude of connected medical devices being used by patients.  Patient record data and health plan member records are being exposed, stolen and/or compromised more frequently than in years before.

This presentation will discuss how patients who want to manage their own data and determine what information will be provided or shared with providers, hospitals, and mobile devices will be able to maintain privacy and security.  In addition, this discussion will focus on how government and industry capabilities and tools can ensure the point of care privacy for individuals, their data, and the systems that are used as well as ensure that the data being shared is accurate and complete and safely transmitted.

Learning Objectives:

  • How is PHI data being secured today?
  • What challenges are organizations facing when it comes to cybersecurity and the mobile PHI environment?
  • What does the future of mobile PHI security and usability look like?
