How Can Surgery Centers Avoid Health Data Breaches?

Surgery centers in possession of large volumes of data can help to prevent breaches and healthcare fraud schemes by avoiding several key technological trends, according to a Property Casualty 360 Report

Trends that make employees particularly vulnerable to medical data breaches include using personal mobile devices for business purposes while connected to less secure networks; spreading access to private data by outsourcing billing to a third-party provider; and outsourcing data processing to third-party cloud computing providers to minimize expenses.

Companies can help to minimize data breaches by limiting the dissemination of medical data in less secure environments and exploring options for cyber insurance to prepare for any costs and risks associated with a data breach.
