CSC can protect your valuable health information so you can focus on patient care
The healthcare industry is venturing into a world of tremendous opportunity and huge risk, both of which need to be managed hand-in-hand. The widespread adoption of electronic health records combined with almost constant regulatory reform is helping to re-shape the industry to make it leaner, more efficient and more secure. A new business focus on the meaningful exchange of information with other providers, and increased network or Internet connectivity of medical and other devices, have combined to drastically improve the delivery of services and patient outcomes. However these advances come with a caveat in that they can only be implemented safely with improved cybersecurity, and that for many traditional healthcare organizations is a challenge.
Cybersecurity has taken center stage for healthcare CIOs. As major security breaches, such as the recent Shellshock vulnerability, continue to top the news, governments and other regulatory organizations respond with new regulations, increased oversight, and stiffer penalties. Public tolerance is slipping too. Simultaneously, increased demand for mobility, BYOD, and expanding supply chains, along with a desire to link environmental and industrial control systems to traditional IT infrastructure, invariably, adds to risk.
The perception with which cybersecurity is viewed by senior healthcare executives has also changed. It’s no longer being seen in black and white terms of regulatory or contract compliance, or as a cost of doing business. Healthcare cybersecurity is now increasingly being viewed as an enabler of new and highly profitable revenue streams for healthcare. From leveraging investments in complex hospital clinical information systems and enabling EMR and other services to be sold as a service to other delivery organizations, to efficiency improvements in administrative and billing functions through the provisioning of secure web portals and other approved communication protocols.
