InfoSight provides straightforward, highly-robust, affordable solutions. Offering a broad portfolio of IT security and compliance solutions designed to solve information technology challenges unique to the healthcare industry.
On Thursday, July 24th, InfoSight will present an educational webinar entitled: “Hospice & Palliative Care: Essentials of Information Security & Privacy”. The live presentation, followed by a question and answer session, will provide hospice and palliative care providers with the knowledge they need to protect their patients and themselves from breach, theft, and fraud.
Information security awareness education is critical to hospice care due to the great deal of sensitive patient information, including social, medical, and financial data that is handled by medical staff. Medical identity theft accounts for 43% of all identity theft in the U.S. and the number of medical identity theft victims is increasing, the potential for medical casualties is very high, and possibly life threatening. Hospice and palliative care professionals must understand the dangers and consequences of data breach and medical identity fraud and how to protect their patient’s and organisation’s sensitive information.
