Cybersecurity: A patient safety issue
Wednesday, Jan. 24, 2017, 1-2 p.m. (EST)
Cybersecurity is not just a technical issue – it’s also a patient safety issue. As cybersecurity threats increasingly expose physicians and their patients to risk, the AMA has taken several steps to increase awareness and understanding of good cyber hygiene. Recently, a joint research effort between the AMA and Accenture found that: physicians recognize that it’s not “if,” but “when” they’ll experience a cyberattack; physicians rely heavily on third-parties like health IT vendors for security support; and physicians want to share data, and as such, the health care industry needs to work together to create a secure environment for the good of the patient. In this 1-hour webinar attendees will learn how the AMA is shaping the national cybersecurity conversation to focus on patient safety, how physicians can be empowered advocates for their patients, and how it’s a shared responsibility to secure electronic patient information. Laura G. Hoffman, JD, and Matt Reid, MS will co-present. (AMA)
