The healthcare industry is a top target for cybercriminals. Healthcare providers hold patients’ personal and financial data. Plus, they offer a critical service and could be more likely to pay ransom to get systems back up and running. Recognizing the threat, industry regulators have instituted cybersecurity standards. Noncompliance is costly, but the real question is whether meeting the standards is enough.
Healthcare professionals regularly handle the worst. Whether its broken bones, horrible abscesses, disease, or death, but that doesn’t mean they’re ready for all that can cripple their technology.
In 2011, one of the deadliest tornadoes in U.S. history destroyed a large medical center in southwest Missouri. Fortunately, the regional hospital had, only a few weeks earlier, transitioned to Electronic Health Records (EHR). The hospital credits that as a lifeline that helped it have a mobile hospital up and running within a week.
No one is safe from cybersecurity threats or able to ignore digital transformation. But the healthcare industry faces extra pressures to keep its information technology healthy. Here’s why that’s the case and why a Managed Service Provider (MSP) partnership is just what the doctor ordered.
Healthcare shares many of the same concerns as other industries. Leaders want to reduce costs, increase productivity, and improve the bottom line. Many doctor’s offices are moving away from relying on paper files, insurance providers receive faxed claims, electronic medical records (EMR) have replaced rooms of filing cabinets, and medicine has gone mobile with data available on a centralized server in the cloud. Everything from surgery scheduling to patient payments can be processed online.
