Protected health information (PHI) is the currency of digital transformation.
Compared to the financial services industry that has had decades to develop software specifically designed to protect electronic currency, healthcare providers have been forced to use solutions from other sectors to protect health information. The result is an ineffective patchwork of applications not suited for the unique needs of protecting PHI.
While perimeter and network security is important, most PHI incidents occur at the endpoints and the devices connected to the endpoints. Whether the endpoint is managed by IT or is in a remote affiliate's office, the healthcare provider is usually responsible for the breach.
The shift to distributed care, the rise of accountable care organizations, and the value of PHI is making the security problem worse.
