In the process of the digital evolution in healthcare, security of electronic protected health information (ePHI) has been frequently overlooked. So it comes as no surprise that in 2015, almost half of all serious data breaches were in healthcare, and the FBI has warned of more troubling times ahead.
As the Chair of the HIMSS Identity Management Task Force, I witnessed this evolution firsthand. I recall advocating for multi-factor authentication and identity management in healthcare from 2005 to 2008, only to receive blank stares in return. This is no longer the case today. By 2020, ONC expects that at least 50% of healthcare organizations will have implemented identity proofing and authentication best practices.

OneSpan is proud to have partnered with Healthcare Informatics to produce this timely research report on authentication and digital identity management.

“Within a short period of time, passwords will get more antiquated as we move toward more e-services in healthcare. So it’s time to look for a new method based on an interoperability requirement and the mandates of healthcare reform.”
