In the world of medical IT, Epic systems reign supreme. It’s estimated that over half of all patient EHR (Electronic Health Records) are managed by Epic EHR software suites. Because of this, it’s absolutely critical to lock down your Epic databases, ensure HIPAA compliance, and protect yourself against costly data breaches or vulnerabilities.
It’s more important than ever to avoid patient data loss. In 2016, a total of 13.5 million EHR records were lost to hackers, and this trend has continued in 2017, with a variety of high-profile, costly data breaches.
Failure to adhere to best practices for Epic Cache Database implementations can lead to health care provider liability – and serious HIPAA fines in case of negligence.
Epic relies on the InterSystems Cache Database for its EHR capabilities, so it’s critical that you’re able to understand and analyze this database for security vulnerabilities. At Cornerstone, our team of data security experts is the perfect partner for your company.
