Advancing technology also means advancing threats. As Healthcare Administrators, privacy is one of our primary duties. This includes privacy of patient information, the privacy of company files and cloud-based files, protection against hackers and other intruders such as viruses, and unintended leaks of data and information. There are two rules within the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996: Privacy Rule (December 2000, 2002) and Security Rule (February, 2003). These two rules set national standards for the protection of identifiable health information, confidentiality, integrity, and availability of protected health information. However, even with these rules, the news is flooded with issues of compromise and breach on a daily basis. For this discussion, you will visit the Healthcare IT News website (http://www.healthcareitnews.com/news) and find an article that focuses on some sort of privacy breach. Once you have selected your article please analyze and respond based on the points below:
Provide the APA citation and link to the article.
Describe the privacy situation – provide an overview of what occurred in this privacy-related healthcare situation. Present “just the facts” – do not include your opinion at this point. You will get time to do that. (ex: ransomware, dark web, firewall intrusion, cloud breach, phishing, security passwords, questionable billing for telehealth etc).
Discuss the parties involved in the privacy-related situation (ex: patient data, insurance filing compromise, fraudulent billing, deleting of files) etc.
Describe the action the organization took once the privacy-related issue became evident.
Now your opinion – discuss what you feel led to the privacy-related issue AND what you would do as an HCA running this organization to prevent this from happening.
There is an old adage, “A lock only keeps honest people out”. When we evaluate the Healthcare IT industry, is there a way to prevent privacy related intrusions? Please support your perspective.
