With over 10,000 magazines published in the US, I rarely have time to read all of them. But I do make an effort to set aside a few hundred hours each week to read as many of them as I can.
Reading the current 2008/2009 Physicians Practice Annual Tech Guide provided a good helping of security food for thought. As a former physician, I occasionally like to check on the lack of technological progress in the healthcare industry. However, after reading this publication, I was pleased to find that both the Internet, and the digital storage of information, have been discovered and incorporated into the doctor’s office. Unfortunately, the concept of information security has yet to be understood by our community of clinicians.
