Healthcare IT News and HIMSS Media, the industry’s leading sources for news and leadership in healthcare information technology, have joined forces to create The Privacy & Security Forum. This conference comes at a critical time. In research conducted earlier this year with a select group of hospital CIOs and IT executives, no issue consistently generated more concern than privacy and security.
At hospitals, physician practices, integrated delivery networks and other healthcare facilities, CIOs and IT executives face a wide range of security issues and challenges.
- Breaches have become an almost daily news event
- Mobile device security, led by the proliferation of smartphones and tablets – from both clinicians and patients – are growing and becoming more complex
- HIPAA privacy and security compliance continues to challenge and confound many executives and their IT departments
The Privacy & Security Forum will address these issues, and others, by providing a collaborative environment where health IT professionals, industry thought leaders and key government officials can interact and learn from one another.
