HEALTHCARE, MEDICINE, AND CYBER: DATA ROOMS IN HEALTH INDUSTRIES
Every year brings new challenges in healthcare, and 2019-20 has been no different. Whether the healthcare industry is impacted by the new pandemic, or something as sudden as communication disruptions after the Nashville bombing, health systems and independent practitioners alike must be prepared to act and respond.
No piece of technology does so much with so little as a data room.
Data rooms in medicine and healthcare are crucial, and if you use the right one, it can mean the difference between hours spent on paperwork, hiring additional staff, and more.
Trust Vault Rooms with your medical data room needs, and see why not only our security, but also our customized setup process and round-the-clock support team beat others in the industry bar none.
DO YOU NEED A DATA ROOM FOR YOUR PRACTICE OR HOSPITAL?
The short answer is yes! Even the smallest and most rural hospital or health systems should be investing in data room technology, especially during the ongoing pandemic.
With so much patient information moving online, and so many more hackers looking to break in and steal patient info, it’s your responsibility as a healthcare provider to ensure your patients are both medically and informationally protected.
A data room serviced by Vault Rooms means no less than the very best:
24/7 SUPPORT — Free of charge with all Vault Rooms data rooms, receive help not only with setup and security, but also document location.
DIGITAL RIGHTS MANAGEMENT — Parties that need information without further duplication of said data will be barred from downloading or copy/pasting a given piece of information, thanks to DRM technology, should you so choose.
INTERNAL SECURITY — Allow patients or clerks to access documentation without fear that they may be able to access the wider patient portal or information that should be compartmentalized in a data room account.
THE FUTURE OF HEALTH IN THE AGE OF COVID | DATA ROOMS FOR MOBILE HEALTH
As noted by former congressional policymaker Charlie Stenholm (D-TX, Ret.), “We’ve seen 17 hospitals closed in the last few years here in Texas, and that means availability of health care in many of our rural communities are really being challenged. The good news is it’s always rural communities and the people see their problem and begin to work on solutions.”
The urgency facing rural communities is already rearing its ugly head. While COVID affects urban systems with more ongoing trouble than it does rural ones, a future event may run opposite. Our rural communities will need more than grit in order to persevere, which is why reliance on cloud based networks like a Vault Rooms data room can be crucial in times of crisis, and already has been.
Most hospital systems are required to maintain a certain degree of cybersecurity, but when it comes to rehabilitation, senior care, and general practitioners, cybersecurity may not be as rigid. Hackers know this, and will wait for the perfect time to strike, leaving you liable, and your patients in danger.
Healthcare providers are finding they may be losing more than 50% of referrals due to the latency of paperwork processing (per ReferralMD.com). The time spent looking for and completing information costs the industry money, time, and sometimes lives. Protect yourself and others with an industry leading data room.
