Connecting the Dots Between Cyber Risk and Patient Safety:
How Adopting Information Risk Management and PHI Security Strategies Can Help
This white paper highlights how patient safety and information security are linked, identifies emerging PHI-related threats to patient safety, documents relevant incidents and the lessons that can be learned from them, and suggests how risk management frameworks used by hospitals today can be expanded to better protect patients against cybersecurity-related risks.
Today the information needed to provide care resides in more places than ever before, including electronic health records, mobile devices carried by physicians and other caregivers, intelligent medical devices like smart pumps, monitors and implants, not to mention provider partners, business associates and other members of the patient care ecosystem. Safe, quality care depends on timely access to this information. Therefore any threats to information security represent threats to patient safety.
