How safe are your health records and why should you care!
Anne Genge, the CEO of Alexio Corporation, a Certified Information Privacy and Security Professional that specializes in the security of patient health information joins eHealth Radio and the Health Care and Health News Channels.
Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Anne Genge discuss the following:
Why should the average consumer be concerned about data breaches in healthcare?
How many places could this healthcare information reside for a typical person?
What is it about healthcare information that makes it a target for hackers?
Anne, your company, Alexio, focuses on securing healthcare practices. What is one thing consumer’s should know about the security of their data at those offices?
If healthcare practitioners don’t have the right level of security in their offices, where does that leave us, the patient?
Anne, if that is the case, the reality being that the healthcare industry is simply not prepared for the challenges they face in data security, what can the consumer do?
‘We are all patients somewhere, and we all deserve to have our sensitive information safeguarded from public display. Health data is not like a credit card that can be changed. It’s the most intimate details about a person and it stays with you forever. We need to do better.’
