Managing Risk While Strategically Aligning IT and Cybersecurity With Your Organizational Vision
These are challenging but exciting times for healthcare organizations, especially with regard to the increased adoption of information technology and the continued movement toward “connected” healthcare. Within the healthcare industry, significant IT transformation is even more acute considering that it introduces new technologies and disruptive innovation in a heavily regulated environment. There has never been a greater emphasis on the adoption of, and reliance on, new technologies in the industry. Innovation and digital transformation in healthcare continues to push the boundaries of how care is provided. In turn, healthcare organizations are finding their sensitive data is being accessed and utilized in many new ways. This proliferation of data onto a vast array of portable devices, cloud providers and other technologies makes the IT and data environment difficult to control and the pace of change a challenge to maintain — from basic blocking and tackling to cutting-edge solutions for complex problems.
Adapting to the new normal simply to sustain growth is daunting, but how do you thrive amid challenges such as healthcare reform, OCR HIPAA compliance audits, cybersecurity risks and associated breaches, social media misuse, increased fraud regulations, the push toward true digital transformation, resource shortages, vendor shortfalls, misaligned business intelligence and data analytics efforts, and scrutiny on electronic health records utilization/effectiveness/sustainability?
