Cybersecurity in Healthcare

Submitted by on April 12, 2022 – 2:06 am

Five recently reported breaches involving cyberattacks on a mix of healthcare entities have affected a total of more than 1.2 million individuals. This interesting news came to us from GovInfo Security in their article, “Big Hacks: 5 Health Data Breaches Affect 1.2 Million.”

The diversity is evident in the healthcare sector entities getting hit by hacking incidents and the type of attacks, ranging from ransomware to other unauthorized data access.

The days of assuming that security is only the job of the IT department are gone. Organizations need to implement a robust cybersecurity program that begins with setting the tone from the top and adopting a culture of security.

The implementation of electronic health records (EHRs) can hinder fraudulent behavior among staff, or help prevent the appearance of fraudulent behavior. Healthcare professionals who utilize ICD Tagger have the tools of over three decades of experience at their fingertips, including cross-referencing and error flagging, which when combined can help eliminate fraud. This customizable platform works with the healthcare industry to ensure a level of excellence, regardless of office size.
