Tips for managing life after a health care data breach

While preventing a health care data breach is a chief concern among hospitals and medical practices, the steps taken after a breach occurs are equally important for future stability.

Health care data breaches are a common theme, affecting more than 19 million people in one form or another. While IT leaders take lengthy security and privacy measures to avoid a data breach, health care entities must also be prepared for managing life after a breach occurs.

In this podcast, former HHS privacy regulator Adam H. Greene -- now a partner in the Washington D.C. law office of Davis Wright Tremaine LLP where he works with health care providers and technology companies on compliance with HIPAA privacy, security, and breach notification regulations -- explains what organizations are mandated to do from a state and federal level after a data breach occurs. He also discusses how to handle missing PHI, how to organize personnel during recovery, how to assemble a response team and how to determine when a breach has been patched up for good.
