HIPAA: How a Cancer Center Takes Care of Data

Thinking about HIPAA and e-Healthcare? In this article titled Security Q&A: How a Cancer Center Takes Care of Data, quite a few good Q's are answered, for instance:
  • As you thought about sharing health information electronically throughout the hospital, how big of a concern was security and keeping records private?
  • What about encryption?
  • And what about backup?
  • How do you ensure the security and privacy of those records?
  • Do you have guidelines or requirements for when information should be destroyed?
  • How much do you think you spend on security per year?
  • Do you have one or two recommendations for others who may be struggling with data security issues?
