The Role of Technology in Revolutionizing Healthcare

The Role of Technology in Revolutionizing Healthcare

Recent technological advancements have transformed the management and delivery of healthcare services with improvements in patient care, efficiency, and procedural methods. Insurance agents should fully understand how technology influences the healthcare sector to provide comprehensive insurance options to healthcare providers. 

Better protection helps ensure that healthcare services remain in operation despite the widespread cyber threats. In this blog, we explore how technology has changed the healthcare landscape with a focus on cybersecurity and the value of cyber and technology insurance provided by Connected Risk Solutions.

Enhancing Patient Care and Engagement with Technology

Advancements in technology have improved patient care and engagement, which has led to better health outcomes. Electronic health records (EHRs) have replaced traditional paper-style medical records, allowing healthcare providers to access patient information efficiently and securely. EHRs have improved information access and care, although it leaves that information vulnerable to breach or theft from cyber threats.

Telemedicine services and remote monitoring have made healthcare services more accessible, especially in remote areas and for those with mobility challenges. Insurance agents can provide options for coverage to protect healthcare providers against the risks of telemedicine. Healthcare providers must ensure compliance with regulations and patient data-safeguarding measures. Patient privacy and protection are of utmost importance.

Cybersecurity and Protecting Sensitive Data

Technology advancements continue to progress, stressing the importance of cybersecurity for the healthcare industry. Most healthcare providers store patient records digitally, making them particularly vulnerable to cyberattacks. There are a few common threats for healthcare businesses, including phishing threats, malware, ransomware, theft of patient data, and insider threats.

Insurance agents should illustrate the importance of cyber and technology liability coverage to their clients for protection against data breaches, network security incidents, and privacy violations. Connected Risk Solutions provides tailored coverage options for healthcare providers to mitigate their cyber risks and guard against financial losses and reputational harm.
