There’s a lot at stake for healthcare organizations when it comes to securing data. A primary concern is to protect privacy and avoid costly breaches or leaks, but at the same time, data must be accessible if it’s to be used for actionable insights. This executive report introduces four balancing acts that organizations must maintain to build an ideal data security framework:
- Data de-identification
- Cloud environments
- User access
This can be a tug-of-war between IT and security, two groups that often have divergent interests, however well-meaning they may be. Healthcare systems that build bridges between these interests and strike the crucial balance between data utilization and security can dial in on long-term goals, like better care at a lower cost and overall outcomes improvement.
