Identity Theft Reported By 33% Of Healthcare Organizations

Nicole Lewis reports:

A Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) survey has revealed that 33% of respondents said their organization has had at least one known case of medical identity theft, and that some cases may never be reported.

In addition, only 17% of respondents working for medical practices said they were likely to report an instance of medical identity theft, compared to 38% of those working for a hospital. These results come from the 2010 HIMSS Security Survey, a report sponsored by Intel and supported by the Medical Group Management Association.
