Ninety-four percent of healthcare organizations suffered at least one data breach in 2011 and 2012, according to a recent study on patient privacy and data security – a statistic that illustrates how important a secure electronic medical record (EMR) is to any healt-care organization.
The study, conducted by the Ponemon Institute, also found that 45 percent of these organizations actually experienced more than five data breaches in 2011 and 2012.
Common causes of breaches included technology glitches, lost devices, employee and third-party error, and even criminal attacks—and the Ponemon Institute estimates they cost the U.S. health care industry $7 billion each year.
