Third Annual Benchmark Study on Patient Privacy & Data Security

Third Annual Benchmark Study on Patient Privacy & Data Security

December 6, 2012, We are please to announce the release of the Third Annual Benchmark Study on Patient Privacy & Data Security, sponsored by ID Experts.

Healthcare organizations seem to face an uphill battle in their efforts to stop and reduce the loss
or theft of protected health information (PHI) or patient information. As is revealed in the Third
Annual Benchmark Study on Patient Privacy and Data Security
, many healthcare organizations
struggle with a lack of technologies, resources and trained personnel to deal with privacy and
data security risks.

The consequence of not having adequate funding, solutions and expertise in place is clear. Since
first conducting this study in 2010 the percentage of healthcare organizations reporting a data
breach has increased and not declined. Further, there are more reports of multiple breaches and
only 40 percent of organizations in this study have confidence that they are able to prevent or
quickly detect all patient data loss or theft. (click to download study)
