Healthcare administrators have to organize collected images rather than isolating data, leaving businesses vulnerable to cyberattacks. In the past few months, there has been an increase in cyberattacks on healthcare, with patient and employee data compromised.
-Scott Mallonee, head of business development and healthtech at LEADTOOLS, will address the importance of security measures for all images captured during healthcare visits. Especially within the healthcare industry, data privacy and security measures are of the utmost importance. This is especially true for smaller healthcare institutions.
-After image collection, many of those scans remain in a digital wasteland, floating through the abyss. There are far too few healthcare institutions that are securely storing the images.
-By organizing these images using PACS systems, there is no need for searching within the abyss, thus saving time, frustration and money. Often, smaller healthcare institutions do not have PACS systems in place, leaving the stored data isolated for eternity or until the device dies. Images are then lost or, at minimum, the data is difficult to recover.
