What You Need to Know About EHRs and Cybersecurity

As the healthcare technology field continues to grow, cybersecurity is a top concern for many administrators. Unfortunately, 62 percent of healthcare executives report that cybercriminals attacked their business in the past year. It’s no wonder that over 63 percent of healthcare organizations worry about cyber-attacks.

While your knee-jerk reaction to this risk may be to run far away from healthcare technology, doing so won’t keep your patient information data safer. Instead of eschewing EHRs and other technology altogether, you should get more reliable systems.

Technology Isn’t Going Anywhere

Since computers took off, the healthcare industry was destined to go online. This technology has changed what patients expect from their doctors. A recent Accenture study found that healthcare consumers expect tech-powered health services more than ever before. In fact, as much as 61 percent of patients say they are likely to use virtual health assistants.

With such demand, technology is only going to play an increasing role in healthcare. Rather than fight this wave out of fear of cybercrime, providers should embrace more secure solutions to this demand.

Choose a Safe and Certified EHR

When you look for an EHR for your business, it’s essential to choose one that has a security certification from the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology(ONC).

This certification requires EHR vendors to undergo rigorous testing and meet a strict set of standards. These standards ensure that EHR vendors keep your data as safe as possible. ChartLogic is proud to offer a certified EHR and Patient Portal solution that meet and exceed these regulations. Both ChartLogic EHR 9 and Connect Patient Portal 9 are 2015 Edition compliant and have been certified by an ONC-ACB.

If you’re part of the 63 percent of healthcare professionals who worry about hacks, don’t let this fear keep you from providing the service that your patients need. Instead, learn more about ChartLogic and our certified secure EHR.
