Healthcare IT Security Spending to Top $70.0 Billion by 2015

A recent analyst report "estimates that healthcare data security spending in 2012 will top $40 billion, a 22% increase from 2011 levels." Looking out further, the report predicts that "spending will top $70.0 billion by 2015."
"Much of this spending and job growth will come from investments in electronic health records (EHR), mobile health applications and efforts to comply with new government standards." - Boyd Company Report
The report compares the cost of data security in the $2.6 trillion healthcare services industry across 50 US cities with significant concentrations of medical and healthcare industry operations, as well as, smaller regional centers.
