We’re seeing more and more data breaches of large-scale corporate and government organizations in the news daily. Cyber attacks on healthcare systems increased in 2020, and the healthcare sector is expected to fall under even greater pressure from cyber criminals in 2021.
LexisNexis® Risk Solutions Health Care announced an expanded collaboration with Epic, the country’s leading EHR, to offer identity verification and authentication solutions to healthcare providers using the Epic MyChart patient portal.
Healthcare providers are suffering from data breaches at an alarming rate. While these attacks can have serious financial impact on health organizations, the effects on patient lives can be devastating.
Quality provider data is very important to healthcare organizations. In fact, in a recent surveywe conducted with data governance decision makers in provider organizations, 63% of respondents said that proper data governance improves care coordination across practices. These leaders also noted its importance to strategic planning (31% of respondents) and marketing (22%). Even so, organizations seem limited in their ability to maintain high quality provider data.
