From EMR systems and patient portals, to email and mobile devices, health care organizations strive to facilitate faster access to medical information, and deliver better, more efficient care. But with the rise of health care costs, the demand for instant access to PHI, and better care, health care organizations are struggling to balance between security, efficiency and usability. The need to comply with regulations, mitigate risks, and safeguard data, causes buy-in and usability to suffer. How can we preempt, prevent, and mitigate the risks of unauthorized access and data breaches, while enhancing user experience, achieving efficiency, and increasing usability?
