HIMSS Leadership Survey on Privacy and Security

The Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society published their 23rd Annual HIMSS Leadership Survey. I have extracted some of the highpoints from a security and privacy perspective.
"Compliance with HIPAA security regulations and CMS security audits were their top concerns with regard to security at their organizations." - 23rd HIMSS Leadership Survey
Respondents were somewhat less likely to identify funding/financial support for the security process as a barrier than they were in the past. While selected by 13 percent of respondents in 2012, 17 percent of respondents selected this same issue in 2011.
