Research suggests there are over 80,000 healthcare providers (primary care doctors and specialists) in New York State.
With that staggering number and all ancillary staff (those stats don’t count nurses, PA’s, clerks, insurance carriers, etc.), the number of digital touch points for healthcare-related, personally identifiable information is insurmountable.
ID Theft is a growing digital issue as more and more patient data is pushed to digital storage and digital access points. It’s not a far stretch to understand how HIPAA laws are written in a way that keeps personal health information from becoming public knowledge.
HIPAA rules and laws protect people in many ways, not just in paper trails. Many laws are in place so when doctors and hospitals handle patient data digitally, privacy is at the forefront.
