Healthcare continues to be a lucrative target for hackers; however, most health information data breaches in recent years haven’t been the work of external actors. Instead, they have been caused primarily by mistakes or security lapses from within healthcare organizations. In a massive study of more than a 1100 breaches over eight years, more than half were triggered by internal negligence of hospitals, healthcare providers, insurers and other owners of patients’ protected health information. As director of privacy and corporate responsibility for AdventHealth in Orlando, Florida, Tiffany Holman, MSHLP, CHPC, will draw on her extensive experience in health privacy and compliance to share lessons learned and necessary steps EMS leaders need to take to prevent data breaches in their systems.
