Today, mobility is transforming healthcare. Empowering health organizations with mobile devices and apps significantly enhances the patient/provider relationship and enables providers to deliver better care. The growing use of mobility in healthcare is:
- Making data more readily available
- Improving workflow and efficiency
- Enhancing the patient experience inside the hospital and beyond
- Optimizing communication and collaboration between patients and providers, and providers and their peers
The benefits are clear. However, the challenge remains for health organizations to find the right balance between allowing access to highly confidential medical records through mobile apps and devices, while keeping patient data secure. With the continuous state of change in the global threat landscape, healthcare organizations face cyber attacks and security breaches that are growing in frequency and sophistication every day.
While mobility is moving healthcare forward, it’s imperative to use the right tools to mitigate security risks and be prepared if a breach does occur. Establishing a secure mobility strategy is key to keeping both your patient data and network secure.
