As we told you here, a study by Accenture found that a quarter of all healthcare consumers have fallen prey to data breaches—with half of them going on to become victims of medical identity theft. While hospitals were the most common source, other settings (including urgent care) were not immune. The Urgent Care Association (UCA) will offer tips to help you avoid such dangers in a live webinar, The Changing Landscape of Cyber Security, Thursday, March 16, 1–2 pm, Central. Attendees will learn how to identify potential threats to their systems (and their patient’s personal information), giving them a leg up on mitigating legal risk. Attendance is $50 for UCA members; cost for nonmembers is $70. Click here for more information or to register.
