Healthcare Challenges in the Era of Transformational Technologies

Administration and operations in the Healthcare industry have been revolutionized and only 9% of healthcare organizations in the U.S. do not embrace the cloud.

The flip side to such adoption of, and reliance on, technology is an increase in security risks, data breaches and fraud because everything that is accessible via the internet or cloud is also potentially accessible to cybercriminals.

  • 94% of healthcare organizations had at least one data breach between 2010 and 2012.
  • According to the FBI, healthcare fraud in the U.S. represents an estimated annual cost of $80 billion.
  • On the patient/customer side, there were 1.85 million victims of medical identity theft in the U.S. in 2012.
