In this series, we are featuring some of the thousands of vendors who will be participating in the HIMSS15 conference and trade show.

Industry Outlook

Information security and patient privacy are fundamental components of a well-functioning healthcare environment. Protecting patients’ information is simply another way of ensuring their health and safety. While healthcare practitioners may not realize the black market value of the data in their care, criminals certainly do. From the perspective of today’s cyber criminal, electronic health records are a rich source of information that can be sold on the black market. By 2020, the entire concept of how medicine is practiced will change. The challenge will be managing a balance between accessibility and the need to protect this valuable data against constant cyber security threats. And keeping data safe when it is within and beyond the confines of hospitals and other healthcare organizations is a serious challenge, one that cannot be met merely through regulatory compliance.
