The Pros And Cons Of EHRs In The Cloud

HITO Amit Cohen, FortyCloud

Patient health records – how secure are they? Fast on the heels of the Anthem breach, news of the Premera Blue Cross cyberattack overtook the headlines. According to a Redspin Report, more than 40 million Americans suffered a breach of their personal health information between 2009 and 2014. Of the PHI data breaches in 2014, more than 50 percent were due to hacking attacks; unauthorized access or disclosure was the cause of a third of the hacks. However, as many institutions prefer to avoid the liability, costs and damage to their reputation that result from disclosure and notification, many breaches go unreported, so that the actual numbers might be much higher.
