The Evolving Patient Portal, with Increased Adoption Brings Increased Risk

Medical identity theft is a growing problem. Medical related identity theft accounted for 43% of all identity fraud committed in the US in 2013. And unfortunately, that number is anticipated to rise. With recent headlines containing news of healthcare data breaches, it is clear that healthcare organizations need to employ robust solutions in order to protect their patients from identity theft and fraud. As Electronic Medical Records grow in use and patient portals increase in adoption, healthcare organizations will inevitably experience more risk.
