3 Best Ways to Prevent Healthcare Data Breaches

According to attorney Robert Belfort, the 3 best ways to prevent healthcare information breaches are:
  • Conduct internal audits of employee access to medical records.
  • Educate staff about sanctions they'll face if they're guilty of a breach.
  • Encrypt data on mobile devices and media.
"The belief that ... there's a high risk that if you access a record improperly you will be caught through some sort of audit trail review can have an important impact on behavior." - Attorney Robert Belfort, an expert in HIPAA compliance, fraud and abuse.
