Anne Genge of Alexio tells us that 96% of healthcare providers are concerned about how their staff are using personally identifying health information.

But - , many healthcare providers and business owners don’t know what to do about it!

Can your staff protect you from a ransomware attack?

Yes, they can!

And it doesn’t have to be hard or expensive to do that.

Today, on Practice Management Nuggets For Your Healthcare Practice, Anne Genge, CEO of Alexio Corporation is my guest expert. Anne will help us to understand the cyber security risks that every healthcare practice in Canada is facing now and what you can do now to reduce your risk.

6 Mistakes Made By Dentists (And Their IT)

  1. Think that IT has them covered and that ransomware won't happen to me!
    1. Not updating and monitoring computer systems with intrusion prevention/detection.
    2. Don't have a comprehensive backup of all of your data in at least 3 locations.
    3. Don't run backup restore tests regularly.
    4. Don't have a written mandatory cyber security awareness training plan.
    5. Don't have an independent cyber security risk assessment and management plan annually.

Meet Ange Genge

Anne Genge is a pioneer in protecting health data and those who use it. She is a Certified Information Privacy Professional with a specialization in dentistry. Anne also holds certifications for HIPAA, Credit Card Security, Internet, and Network Security. Ransomware and data theft have changed the face of dentistry in the past decade meaning dentists need a new toolkit for protecting their practices.

With over 20 years of experience, Anne knows the challenges healthcare providers face with technology. She and her team at Alexio Corporation work with dental and medical professionals to minimize data risk and maximize patient care. As healthcare grows increasingly dependent on the digital environment, cyber-security becomes increasingly more difficult. Protection of patient data is not only law, it’s imperative for business success and reputation. Anne simplifies cyber-security for dentists and other healthcare providers and gives ‘real world’ strategies to protect patient information and the practice business.

The way a healthcare provider collects, uses and discloses personal health information (PHI) is critical to an efficient healthcare practice.

It’s also required by legislation and professional college regulations and standards.

Policies and procedures must be in writing, available to employees, and monitored to ensure that they are followed. Otherwise, you face all sorts of risks, including privacy breaches and other legal problems.

Don't let this happen to you!

Everyone in a healthcare practice — including front office staff, wellness practitioners and physicians and other custodians — must be aware of and follow these policies and procedures.

These policies and procedures also become the foundation of your privacy impact assessment (PIA).

That’s why, in this Practice Management Nugget, we’ll review a privacy breach investigation report from Alberta's Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner (OIPC).

 When we know better, we can do better…

I’ve helped hundreds of healthcare practices prevent privacy breach pain like this. If you would like to discuss how I can help your practice, just send me an email. I am here to help you protect your practice.

PRIVACY BREACH NUGGETS are provided to help you add a ‘nugget' to your privacy education program. Share these with your staff and patients as a newsletter, poster, or staff meeting.
