Vulnerability is higher for health data as cybersecurity spending has been historically lower in health care than in other industries. As a result, cyber criminals continue to target the health care industry for its valuable data.
With the number of data breaches increasing every year since 2010, health system leaders are highly focused on cybersecurity and acting to combat the problem. One action health systems are taking is devoting a bigger part of their IT budgets to cybersecurity, said Gary Bisbee Jr., PhD, Co-founder and Executive Chairman of The Health Management Academy.
A survey of health system IT leaders conducted by The Health Management Academy in partnership with the Center for Connected Medicine (CCM) found that nearly 90 percent of health systems were planning to boost spending on cybersecurity in 2019. The survey findings were discussed at the CCM’s Top of Mind 2019 Summit during a panel moderated by Bisbee and featuring three IT executives from health systems.
