Data is power in the age of artificial intelligence (AI). And in countries like India, the range of AI is huge, especially in the healthcare field.
From precision medicine and remote data management to diagnostics and predictive analytics, healthcare technology is making great strides. However, these innovations also introduce new security challenges, especially regarding personal health records.
He is. In order for technology to truly change the way healthcare is delivered, it must first address cyber-attacks such as data theft and ransomware.
Can AI help neutralize threats without human intervention? Is the future of cybersecurity security the possibility of developing AI?
Traditionally, it is the patient’s responsibility to maintain medical data in India. Even today, paper-based systems are used to create medical records, but in most cases the treatment history continues to be handwritten. Of course, most of this data is lost over time.
Or, electronic forms often become accessible because they are idle on private local medical data servers.
What is needed is a safe and seamless flow of information from digital healthcare infrastructure that can change the way clinicians diagnose and treat patients.
Centralized file management systems such as Electronic Health Record (EHR) can facilitate rapid data acquisition, data sharing, and trend analysis.
Today, these digital healthcare systems can collect data from multiple sources, including hospitals, clinics, diagnostic facilities, and individual healthcare workers.
But the adoption of wearable and integrated sensors in prevention and emergency medical response systems using short-range wireless communication technologies raises concerns about data security.
There are many safety cases in the global healthcare industry.
In June 2017, U.S. pharmaceutical company Merck and healthcare provider Heritage Valley Health Systems were targeted by the NotPetya ransomware attack.
The Internet of Things (IoT) today has several points of information inflows and outflows — plus potential soft spots — that can be targeted by malicious data hackers.
Data breaches in healthcare have been reported to affect millions of people, causing identity theft, financial loss, loss of profit, and leakage of sensitive personal data to third parties.
The cost of personal health information in the Comman market is believed to be 10 times credit card details.
As more medical technologies and solutions are connected to the network, the frequency of cyber attacks increases.
Over time, awareness of providers and payment organizations, and the corporate information security officers (CISOs) of medical technology companies, is increasing to do more to protect their healthcare data.
Researchers are already using cognitive algorithms to learn and predict new malware behaviors. The Al-based learning security system has the potential for future cyber-defense.
Policies should consider normalizing digital medical records by identifying a systematic approach to IT in healthcare.
Operate to obtain indications from countries where policies are already in place, such as the US Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Canadian Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documentation Act (PIPEDA).
The guidelines should be prepared as a precursor to the national EHR policy. Interestingly, many countries encourage the use of EHR systems and continuous improvement.
Social tech companies need to strengthen security as Digital India Drive and Smart Cities Mission to accelerate the adoption of IT in their healthcare. However, data security is not free. For equipment vendors, it affects prices.
Today, most equipment vendors leave safety issues in hospitals and insurers to avoid cost penalties in highly competitive markets. But as you invest in vaccines that prevent the spread of the epidemic, you need to think long-term.
