Episode 20: Who has their hands on your healthcare data? Decoding PHI security with David Ting from Tausight
An average of two major healthcare data breaches happen every day—double the rate the industry faced just three years ago. David Ting, CEO and founder of Tausight, talks with Justin about what makes your protected health information (PHI) more valuable to thieves than your social security number, why the industry is better at securing technical infrastructure than data itself, and how neural networking and natural language processing can help providers track and handle patient records more securely.
Justin asks David the hard questions about maintaining data security in an increasingly porous digital landscape: How can the industry leverage digitization without risking compliance or locking clinicians down? Why should patients and providers make situational PHI awareness part of their digital hygiene routines? And what steps can we all take to better secure our data?
