Technology has increasingly been used in healthcare over the past few years, becoming a normal practice throughout the medical industry. The almost universal access to information in healthcare has ushered in a new era marked by improved diagnosis and treatments. But this wonderful benefit comes at a cost: the risk of health data breaches. Therefore, it's vital for us to be conscious about how we utilize this new technology and information and take steps to preserve healthcare information.

Our expert shares his experience in working in clinical investigations where research and client data privacy have been of the utmost concern and pulls on his expertise in developing a variety of electronic medical records to highlight the importance of managing risk associated with data breaches.
