Premium Content Preview | How cloud security can protect patient data

Article

Securing sensitive patient data presents its own set of challenges – even when medical groups enact their own policies that go beyond HIPAA minimums. Find out how to protect yourself and your patients

Some may be surprised to learn that storing all your clinical and financial data on servers somewhere in the office – under a desk or in a closet – may not be the safest approach.

“We didn’t want a server that could be stolen,” Ken Adams, office manager, stated.
