Top Healthcare Concerns
Here are some of the topics that keep healthcare facilities managers and end users up at night:
Active shooters—individuals actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area.
Remote campuses—need new technologies to stay connected to main facilities.
Parking lots—dangerous areas where nurses, patients and doctors need to travel to at all hours of the day or night.
Patient data leaks—privacy and data breaches are a major concern, especially as they move to new technologies. Patient identity theft is also on the upswing. A new survey from PricewaterhouseCoopers found that a majority of health enterprises do not have the security in place, nor the policies, to properly protect patient data and privacy.
Community and hospital as one—both the good and the bad element spill over into emergency rooms and other parts of the facility.
