The signs of disruption in the healthcare industry are everywhere: Massive mergers. Major employers test driving new data-driven employee-based population health and preventive care programs. A major online retailer acquiring a pharmacy benefits administrator. 
 
It’s an exciting and transformational time for the healthcare market. Patients can benefit from better information about health choices. Physicians can be more confident about treatment plans with greater visibility into outcomes. Even the potential to realize the promise of personalized medicine and targeted therapies without risking patient privacy. 
 
Faced with all of the challenges and complexities of today’s healthcare environment, how can you accomplish your mission? 
 
One theme is clear: Data is the future of healthcare. During this session, I’ll help you understand: 
 
  • How data is the driving force underlying emerging technologies like artificial intelligence, (AI); analytics and applications in the cloud
  • Why you must manage data as a strategic, enterprise asset to improve decision-making speed and accuracy, and promote more seamless change management 
  • What the five key areas are that are critical for successful data management within your organization

Healthcare organizations are flooded with data, and with the increasing usage of monitoring and health devices, the flood isn’t slowing down anytime soon.  In order to improve the performance of healthcare organizations with goal of providing better care at a lower cost, we need to take advantage of the latest that the world of technology has to offer, but we also need to ensure that the solutions are clinically relevant.

Breaches are on the news seemingly weekly, as organizations are struggling to secure their data. Phishing attacks are proliferating and going after our workforce. Ransomware has taken several victims and is also escalating. Healthcare organizations have become prime targets.

In this talk, I will share strategies to combat the rise of cybercrime, and how to make your networks more secure. I will discuss administrative, technical, and physical security controls. 
  • Have you built a sustainable and dynamic Information Security Plan? Have you shared this with upper management and gotten their buy-in and support?
  • Have you initiated a balanced Security Awareness Program? Are you regularly running scans of both your network and your applications? Are you monitoring your network to detect unusual activity? What about when that dreaded intrusion into your network occurs? Do you know what to do?
  • Are you testing and evaluating your security controls on a regular basis? How often do you test your Disaster Recovery Plan and your Incident Response Plan? Do you have the right people on your IR team?
We are entrusted with highly sensitive data. We must utilize best practices, but they cannot be "best" unless they employ both best privacy and security practices. Come learn if you are doing this and ensure that you indeed protect your confidential information.
 
Don't allow your organization to become the next victim of a breach.
