12:00 PM – 1:00 PM CT

Although much attention is paid to breaches caused by criminal hacking and thefts, more than 40 percent of Protected Health Information (PHI) breaches are due to “unintentional employee negligence,” which can be attributed to inconsistent organizational policies, processes not being followed, and uncertainty amongst staff with different levels of training and experience. This presentation will explore the latest trends and statistics related to PHI breaches, both on the state and national level, and recommend five best practices healthcare organizations can adopt to lower their likelihood of PHI breach.
