Your patients arrive in your office with injuries and ailments that threaten their health. You review the situation and prescribe a plan of action and perhaps medication that will remedy the situation at best and alleviate pain or risk as well.
You give them a prescription for health.
Because that’s what you do.
When it comes to keeping your business informed on dangerous healthcare scams that could impact you and your patients, we’ve got you covered.
Because that’s what we do.
The threat to the healthcare industry and patient data just simply isn’t going away, and it isn’t lessening. You need to be prepared to not only act within your own internal office but also work to keep your patients informed on the risks to their protected health information (PHI) as well. With scams that involve impersonating hospital representatives, Medicare scams, and even COVID-19 vaccination scams, the possibilities of their PHI being compromised are always around. It’s critical that you work with them to ensure that they know the signs to recognize and the action to take when faced with the threat or uncertainty of a cybercriminal and his or her actions.
Keep in mind, education has a huge impact when it comes to your team and making sure that they know what to look for too. Their personal credentials could lead a hacker to your business accounts and logins as well. Suddenly a data breach of their credit card or bank leads to a search online to where they work, which leads to a clear shot at logging in to your office systems with the stolen user id and password. And using different accounts and logins doesn’t always mean you’re safe. There are files kept that cross-reference different breaches to match up information for many different types of calculated attacks.
You can learn more about current scams that are targeting you as a healthcare entity, and scams that are targeting your patients as well by watching our recent webinar, Your Prescription for Healthcare Scams. You’ll even get access to a free “Spreading Scam Awareness” printout that you can share with your staff and your patients on how to spot these dangerous scams.
