Smart_CardComputers form the backbone of modern day healthcare facilities. Had it not been for the consummate analytical supremacy and multitasking capability offered by computers, seamless execution of the otherwise complex underlying medical practices indispensable to holding the entire healthcare industry together would have been impossible.

The medical records are by far the most sensitive piece of information healthcare practitioners and hospitals are supposed to safeguard. Ironically, medical data breach incidents are increasing with every passing day. According to a recent report by US department of Health and Human Services, the cumulative impact of medical record security breaches from Sep 2009 to date involves personal data from around 19 million+ patients. That’s more than 6% of the total population of the US affected directly. Furthermore, the breaches have been reported across the entire healthcare landscape – from hospitals to diagnostic laboratories, encompassing almost all areas of medicine and healthcare.

Statistics depict that a staggering 22% of the breaching incidents have come into play owing to unauthorized access to the medical computer and associated information disclosure. Additionally, about 7% of the occurrences are an outcome of stolen passwords, Trojan horse attacks and related system exploitations that require access to the system. That adds up to a jaw-dropping 29% of the total compromises manifested as a product of a medical computer falling into the wrong hands, with no access control mechanism whatsoever on board the machine.

The statistics provide insights about the essential data security measures the medical industry is badly missing on – medical computers with secured access and secured login provisions. The best practice that eliminates the possibility of medical record breach is to deploy medical computers inherently designed to prevent information disclosure by restricting unauthorized access to the medical computers containing the valuable records.

Latest design innovation by Cybernet equips medical touch screen PC with CAC (Common Access Card) and MSR based authentication capabilities for curbing unapproved admittance to the sensitive medical records, thereby preventing compromise of data voluntarily or involuntarily.

Cybernet medical computers with secured access technology enable medical practitioners to secure for themselves peace of mind, enabling them to focus on what they do the best – curing patients and serving humanity. Read more about Cybernet’s game-changing medical computer products right here.
