Tech preps healthcare organization for lawsuits

InformationWeek, May 2, 2014
When a Southern hospital fired its IT director for cause, the disgruntled ex-employee quickly countered by filing two lawsuits. That hospital is not alone: Healthcare organizations faced a growing number of investigations and litigation in 2013, according to a report from Norton Rose Fulbright, a multinational law firm. The hospital's attorneys sought help from CynergisTek, a consulting firm focused on regulatory compliance in healthcare, said CynergisTek CEO Mac McMillan, who also is chair of the Health Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Privacy and Security Policy Task Force.
