The economic & productivity impact of IT security on healthcare

Hear Dr. Larry Ponemon, chairman and founder of the Ponemon Institute, review the findings and implications of his May 2013 study entitled “The economic & productivity impact of IT security on healthcare.

Dr. Ponemon discusses the impact that the use of pagers and other outdated communication technologies has on doctor productivity and a hospital’s bottom line—according to the study, outdated communication systems waste clinicians’ time and lengthen patient discharge times, cumulatively costing the U.S. healthcare industry more than $8.3 billion annually.

In addition, Dr. Ponemon discusses the effects of compliance and security regulations on the delivery of patient care and adoption of more modern communication technologies, including why a majority of IT and healthcare professionals think HIPAA compliance can be a barrier to providing effective patient care.

Don’t miss out – watch now to learn:

  • How inefficient communication technologies cost clinicians more 45 minutes each day, costing the healthcare industry over $5.1 billion annually
  • Why 65% of care providers cite that secure text messaging can cut discharge time by 50 minutes per patient
  • The effects of regulations on the delivery of patient and technology adoption and why 51% of IT and healthcare say HIPAA compliance can be a barrier to providing effective patient care
