ID Theft is nothing new and the prevalence of it seems to have grown as the digital industries have grown. More people are connected digitally than ever before. And with the mass digital connections, medical identity theft is a major problem.
HIPAA rules and laws protect people in many ways. Some of those rules involve the way doctors and hospitals handle patient data digitally. As more laws push doctors and hospitals to move patient data to digital storage and digital access points, it is more critical than ever to protect the identities, rights, and information about those patients.
Computers, tablets, servers, and more often become obsolete or break. And just like consumers are lawfully required to dispose of electronics in the right ways, doctors, hospitals, and the healthcare industries need to be doubly diligent to dispose of electronics in a manner that protects the public and their healthcare records.
