    So, why are these numbers relevant to healthcare cyber-security?

    Healthcare is one of the most dynamic and rapidly evolving industries in the United States. The adoption of technology is growing exponentially and the investment in healthcare IT is outpacing nearly every other vertical market. 2016 promises to continue this trend, with security, interoperability and reimbursement leading the way as key healthcare challenges. Cloud, mobile, data analytics and HIPAA compliance will significantly impact purchase decisions as healthcare providers attempt to improve population health, enhance the individual experience of care and reduce the per capita cost of care (otherwise known as the Triple Aim of Care).  (more…)
