NHCAA ID Experts to talk about cyber-attacks and…
The NHCAA Annual Training Conference will be held next week in Atlanta and ID Experts again will be right in the middle of the conversations. This is one of the healthcare industry’s biggest events completely focused on fraud, waste, and abuse.
Be sure not to miss the expert panel we’ve assembled, Thursday, November 17 where we’ll discuss Medical Identity Theft and Cyber Attacks: Responding to the New World. Our all-star panel of experts will take a real look at 2016 to review medical identity theft and healthcare fraud from three perspectives: consumer, health plan, and legal/regulatory to explore what’s at stake, discuss the issues and pain points, outline the trends, and examine solutions. I will be moderating and the session promises to inform and educate.
Healthcare data is a treasure trove of information and criminals are launching ever-more aggressive, targeted attacks to get it. In today’s world of cyber attacks and data breaches, sensitive information is readily exposed and consumers are increasingly vulnerable to medical identity theft and healthcare fraud.
According to the latest Ponemon Institute report on medical identity theft, the number of victims has nearly doubled in five years. Will this number continue to grow exponentially? Many healthcare providers are taking proactive measures and exploring new ways to protect patient privacy. Is it enough? Are healthcare organizations working with law enforcement early on?
All government fronts are stepping up fraud protection and cracking down on healthcare fraud. Are the efforts helping? Or, as an industry, are we plugging holes only to find new holes.
We hope to see you in Atlanta next week, and if you’re planning to attend come see us at Booth 314.
