The frightening truth about the security of our healthcare data | GigaOM Tech News

The frightening truth about the security of our healthcare data | GigaOM Tech News | Healthcare Instructional Design | Scoop.it

Is your healthcare data safe? That’s not something most people think about on a regular basis. We take for granted that our medical records, family histories, insurance coverage and the rest of the data associated with our health is protected carefully by those who create and store it.

 

But the truth is that we are struggling right now as a society to figure out how to secure digital information–both legally and against the threat of data hacking, theft or loss.

 

The United States’ recent adoption of new healthcare laws and procedures includes requirements for hospitals and other care providers to digitize medical records. Digitization of health data is cost-effective, efficient and offers a wealth of benefits. Eventually, patients will be able to log in and access their entire medical history in one place, helping them become more informed consumers of healthcare. Some states, like Massachusetts, have already taken major steps in this direction.

 

But having our healthcare data readily available for positive purposes online means it’s also readily available for those who are interested in exploiting or misusing the information.

 

Recent technological advances have made medical data both richer and more valuable–and thus more dangerous in the wrong hands.

Avidity Medical Design's insight:

Very insightful article. I especially agree with point #2 and point #4. Point #2 indicates that learners can use past experiences to tap into new ideas. Point #4 indicates that adult learners would like to have the ability to take a more active role in defining their own learning experience. I see an interrelationship between both points because they each describe elements of self-directed learning. The learner is using what they already know to tap into new knowledge (point #2), and then, given the opportunity, they are choosing how, when, and where they acquire the new knowledge (point #4), with consideration given to the knowledge that they have already obtained (point #2). Excellent article, keep up the good work!

Sharrock's curator insight, January 15, 2014 11:30 AM

This article offers useful suggestions for trying get students interested in the lessons and topic. I like that it acknowledges how adults are motivated by extrinsic factors and rewards. This is often overlooked, even briefly.

 

The article suggests that these strategies should include trust-building and relationship building in the excerpt: "Beyond acknowledging that basic needs must be met, we must tap into the adult learners’ motivation by addressing their individual potential and helping them to realize the personal satisfaction that can come from achievement. Yes, there are extrinsic factors at play—adult learners pursue education to advance in a career, to earn more money, and to gain some prestige that may come with a higher degree. But, without ignoring these practical issues, if students can also see how their education, even how each individual class they take, can make a difference in how they see themselves and how they can apply their learning, we start to tap into intrinsic motivation."

Why Healthcare Organizations Need to Join LinkedIn #hcsm

Why Healthcare Organizations Need to Join LinkedIn #hcsm | Healthcare Instructional Design | Scoop.it

Slowly but surely, healthcare organizations are climbing onboard and using social media sites, in particular, LinkedIn. If you have yet to climb onboard sites such as LinkedIn and still don’t believe that social media channels are useful for business, we’ve found a LinkedIn infographic which may change your mind. Healthcare organizations need to be on social media sites in order to reach/engage/converse with customers, patients, and peers. If you are not online and communicating on social media sites, you may be missing out on countless opportunities to increase your company’s visibility.

 

If you’re not on LinkedIn because you think of Facebook exclusively when you hear the term “social media”, you should take a closer look at what LinkedIn can offer. LinkedIn is primarily a professional networking site and it’s a great medium for businesses to engage with prospects, so getting your name out there is crucial.

 

Below are some important metrics to consider. Feel free to share this blog with any healthcare professionals you think need a nudge in the direction of social media adoption.

Why your organization should be on LinkedIn:

Total number of LinkedIn users: 238 millionPercentage of users that check LinkedIn daily: 27%Total number of business pages: 3 millionTotal number of LinkedIn groups: 1.5 millionPercentage of visits via mobile: 27%
