Privacy Training Case Study


Information technology has, and continues, to play an integral role in the health care industry. While digital health technology has improved the way patient care is administered, sensitive data such as personal health information (PHI) has become increasingly susceptible to data breaches. In order to prevent these types of incidents, Health Information Custodians (HICs) such as clinicians, must have sufficient knowledge of current laws to safeguard against unauthorized access to data and must implement privacy protocols. Proper privacy and security training is required, however it can often be time consuming and expensive.
