PTR PODCAST Episode 15: Responsible Care of Pharmacy Patient Information

Guests:

  • Dave Gilmore - Chairman StrongCord Systems
  • Sean Lawson - VP Technical Services StrongCord Systems

The most valuable, monetize-able asset, U.S. healthcare has is its data. The criticality of patient data drives pharmaceutical development, bounds insurance actuarial policies, fills tomes of learning for all healthcare related education, drives strategic placement and development of healthcare related construction, and on and on the list goes.

Make no mistake about it, the U.S. Healthcare industry of over $2.3 Trillion Dollars is driven and bounded by patient data/information. On the downside, patient data is the most sensitive information about any given individual. It reveals social security identification, home address information, insurance coverage information, health history information, medication management information, and sometimes psychological and behavioral life patterns and history. Any or all of this can be used harmfully against a patient in myriad ways.

Additionally, fraud on a massive scale can be perpetrated using falsified identities for monetary gain and deeper intrusion into various healthcare industry corporate organizations.
