Security and Authentication
in Healthcare

A Mercator Advisory Group Executive Brief Sponsored by IDology

Healthcare organizations have historically focused on compliance-related security issues of patient privacy and the management of billing fraud. While these issues are still prominent, the new era of patient portals and online data accessibility for healthcare workers has raised emerging security concerns that extend beyond compliance to include identity theft and patient safety. It is not surprising that the security roots in compliance continue to dominate agendas, but there is a growing realization that measures healthcare organizations have in place are insufficient to handle today’s threats.
