New HIMSS Analytics Survey Reveals Healthcare 'Business Associates' Are Unprepared for Data Breach
Date:11/17/2009

one data breach this year
  • 68 percent of all hospitals indicated that the HITECH Act's expanded breach notification requirements will result in the discovery and reporting of more incidents, and 57 percent reported that they now have a greater level of awareness of data breaches and breach risk
  • 90 percent indicated they have changed or plan to change policies and procedures to prevent and detect data breaches.
  • "This study highlights the tremendous risk exposure for healthcare organizations," said Bob Gregg, CEO of ID Experts. "Despite an increase in risk assessments conducted, data breach is on the rise and patients are at a high risk level for medical identity theft and fraud where an unknown person will use an identity to illegally receive benefits or services. We help healthcare organizations understand what to do when a breach happens so that they and their business associates can act quickly - putting patients first - and respond in a caring and compliant matter."
