Information security is critical to the provision of safe, high-quality healthcare and the efficient running of a general practice. It is a fixed cost of doing business, and requires adequate allocation of financial and human resources to ensure business continuity and the protection of information assets.
Information security involves prevention of inappropriate access, protection of personal information and preservation of practice data.
Patient or practice team data that is lost, stolen, inappropriately used or accessed can result in identity theft or privacy breaches that could ultimately place your practice at risk of incurring substantial fines or penalties.
