Security & Privacy Concerns for Healthcare Data


In the healthcare sector, information technology (IT) is becoming incredibly valuable and influential. The healthcare sector and the rest of the world are more concerned than ever about data security. The number of data breaches exposing sensitive healthcare information is increasing. Cloud computing is very useful for securing data in terms of data security. Due to the need for online surveillance due to data storage issues, several data security technology methods have been developed. One of the mechanisms that will aid healthcare data security is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).


Basic patient operator error is another healthcare data security risk associated with EHRs. Your patient privacy is in your hands if you've accessed your lab results through your provider's portal. Make sure you're following best practices for healthcare data security, such as being aware of what you store where while using strong encryption whenever possible, as well as in your emails.


Healthcare professionals across the country are debating how to integrate cutting-edge technology into their practices without violating HIPAA or putting patients at risk. Data encryption is one form of protection against the increasing threat.

Virtru Pro employs robust, well-proven client-side encryption, ensuring that your sensitive information is safe from when it is sent to the moment it is received. Similarly, since Virtru handles your keys, the risk of an attacker gaining access to your credentials (and thus defeating your encryption) is greatly reduced.


UNC Health Care (UNCHC) is another example of a “non-profit comprehensive healthcare system” in North Carolina that has introduced a new system that allows clinicians to access and analyses unorganized patient data using rational processing quickly.


Furthermore, in the Western World, the Indiana Health Information Exchange, a non-profit organization, connects more than Ninety hospitals, community health clinics, rehabilitation centers, and other healthcare professionals in Indiana through a reliable and scalable technology network of healthcare data statistics.
