Whether you are a hospital, pharmacy or a solo healthcare practitioner, the requirements and obligations regarding the collection, storing and destruction of confidential information are significant.

Not everything your organisation collects, stores, or handles is digital. When medical records and prescriptions are printed, or reports are circulated for a meeting, they are at risk of getting into the wrong hands if they are not handled and disposed of properly and securely.

For that reason, every healthcare organisation is at risk regardless of size, type, or location. But in an industry that relies on privacy, the reality is that many information breaches happen not just because of inferior firewalls or weak passwords, but because of employee error or negligence. So, you may be doing everything you can but one member of staff casually dropping an old medical report or prescription into a recycling bin can undo everything.

In healthcare, it’s a safe bet that every document you or your employees handle contains some form of confidential information. Whether it’s patient records or pharmacy reports, or your own financial reports and billing data, you have a lot of information to secure.

If you create, collect, or dispose of these types of documents, you and your organization could be at-risk for an information breach.
