It’s one of the most infuriating things patients can experience during their care journeys — they’ve had an image taken (perhaps even at another unit in the hospital) and the clinician they are now in front of either didn’t receive it or can’t access it. And it’s not only frustrating for the patient, but for the clinicians on both ends of that image handoff who are unable to deliver the care they want, or at the very least are having their workflow stymied. The reasons for such lack of interoperability are legion — ranging from too many disparate PACS, to too many differing workflows, to suboptimal governance. In this timely webinar, we’ll hear from leaders about where they’re focusing their enterprise imaging efforts and the best practices learned along the way.
One the main keys to success in any business is focusing on certain products and services to the exclusion of others – to draw a circle in the sand and say, ‘We play in these areas, and in them we will be the best.’ If an organization can’t be great at something that others are doing better, it may be time to reallocate those resources. For Damon Auer, the time for health systems with hospitals at their core to decouple from the ambulatory/retail space is now. It’s a bold prediction, driven by the observable fact that new entrants into that space are providing an Amazon-like experience which established, acute-centric organizations can only dream about. In this Partner Perspective interview with healthsystemCIO Founder and Editor-in-Chief Anthony Guerra; Auer, Chief Executive & Managing Director, North America, Dedalus Group, discusses these issues and many more.
Your organization needs cyber insurance. Why? Over 80% of organizations experienced at least one successful phishing attack in 2021, and 54% experienced a cyberattack in the last 12 months. Considering the average cost of a data breach was $4.35 million in 2022 – and even higher in the healthcare industry at $10.1 million – cyber insurance is a business concern that urgently needs your attention. But getting and keeping cyber insurance coverage is increasingly challenging in today’s market – as is getting your claims approved. And even when your claim is approved, you may have insufficient coverage to compensate you. Only 19% percent of organizations have cyber insurance coverage over $600,000, while the average ransomware payment in 2021 was over $810,000. In this timely webinar, we’ll hear from leaders about how they are tackling the cyber insurance challenge.
Busy CISOs working in healthcare never lack actionable threat intelligence. What they need is to quickly find the signal within the noise of cybersecurity alerts – and then effectively remediate risks and vulnerabilities before they can compromise PHI and other sensitive healthcare data. The talent shortage in cybersecurity has left many in-house security teams understaffed and overwhelmed, especially when it comes to cloud-based workloads. That’s why our panel of healthcare security leaders are ready to share their insights on optimizing governance, policies, and tools, including software and managed services, to not only patch apps but proactively hunt threats. In this timely webinar, hear from security leaders who are focused on leveraging all appropriate tools to keep their organizations up and running. Join us to dive into the crucial topic of Mean Time to Respond/Remediate (MTTR), an obstacle healthcare CISOs must overcome daily.
Email is both the lifeblood of an organization’s communications and — for that very reason — the number one vector cyber criminals are leveraging to wreak havoc. To protect email, smart organizations are using a combination of employee education, process improvement and tools (including role-based personas) to prevent people from falling for phishing attacks. But it’s not as simple as locking everything down, because any steps that decrease the deliverability of legitimate emails cause a negative impact on operations, and possibly patient care. In this timely webinar, we’ll speak to leaders who are focused on doing everything possible to ensure that authentic email — and only that — gets delivered intact and on time.
