Bill Kleyman’s recent article in Health IT Security goes over the basics that every Healthcare Security Administrator must consider in their own operations. But no healthcare network operates in isolation. Each healthcare provider must network with other institutions and other partners for billing, medical records and other services. Each of these links presents their own vulnerabilities. It’s not just who you are networking with, but whom everyone you network with networks with themselves.
That’s for practices that have a dedicated Healthcare Security Administrator to worry about these issues. For smaller practices this is just a small part of the Office Manager’s job, who may not have received any network security training.
The answer is to strategically outsource tasks to a company that is a hundred percent dedicated to process security. We go over the steps to selecting the correct partner in our free whitepaper.
