EMRs – Providers Need to Prepare for Virulent Ransomware in 2018

[By staff reporters]

Ransomware emerged as a significant threat on the worldwide stage in 2017, but new variants will challenge healthcare providers well into 2018, with some versions of new malware not even needing a network to distribute themselves throughout an organization. Previous variants of ransomware, particularly the WannaCry attack in May, showed the ability to self-propagate and spread across a network and onto other networks via the Internet.

Educating a healthcare’s organization workforce on cyberattacks is necessary, but it’s not enough to bring them up to speed on phishing and other threats. Practices need to harden their own email systems; for example, Matt Sherman, a malware outbreak specialist at Symantec, advises using secure email systems as a best practice along with two-factor authentication software. Email systems should scan links contained in incoming messages, and they should enable automatic image loading in messages.

Medical “Chartless future for everyone closer than you think”

2015 … Really?

 

 

 

 

 

 

By Darrell K. Pruitt DDS

***

“By 2015, health care is scheduled to be chartless. The federal National Health Information Infrastructure (NHII) is already formulating the parameters for this future. Chartless records are not a choice. The year 2015 is less than seven years away. We have seen hospitals, physicians’ offices, and other health-care providers moving in this direction.

In dentistry, only about 25% of practices are using computers chairside and only 1% is chartless. The American Dental Association is taking a proactive role in NHII. Individual dentists must also take part in the coming changes or once again be victims to others’ choices.”

-Patti DiGangi, RDH, BS

“Ransomware Attacks Can’t Hide from HIPAA Anymore – Hospital and health system executives are on notice: Come clean about ransomware attacks as early as possible or be prepared to face sanctions.”

By Scott Mace, for HealthLeaders Media, July 19, 2016.

http://www.healthleadersmedia.com/technology/ransomware-attacks-cant-hide-hipaa-anymore#

Dean Sittig, a clinical informatics professor at University of Texas Health Science Center and the Houston UT-Memorial Hermann Center for Health Care Quality and Safety, tells HealthLeaders,

The new HHS guidance is going to really ratchet up people’s attention, because now you’re also talking about big fines from the government, as well as the effects of the ransomware.”

OCR pays its own way

1-darrellpruittSubmitted By‏ Darrell Pruitt DDS

“OCR unleashes second wave of HIPAA audits, but will it diminish patients’ privacy and security expectations?

Healthcare entities should expect the Office for Civil Rights to levy fines that help fund the program.  And until OCR delivers a draft audit protocol breaches will continue at patients’ expense.”

By Tom Sullivan for HealthcareIT News

[March 23, 2016]

http://www.healthcareitnews.com/news/ocr-unleashes-second-wave-hipaa-audits-will-it-diminish-patients-privacy-and-security

Sullivan: “Here come the HIPAA audits. And even though OCR has yet to clearly outline what healthcare providers should expect exactly, one thing to anticipate is plenty of financial penalties.”

And David Harlow, a health lawyer, consultant and founder of The Harlow Group, tells HealthcareIT News,

“Who loses out as a result? Patients. The breaches continue, free credit monitoring services are offered, and we all move forward with a diminished expectation of privacy and security.”
