The Issue

Security and Privacy are the two fundamental principles of healthcare and the provision of healthcare services; however the proliferation of electronic medical records has raised concerns about patient safety and security. As online access for patients and medical staff to personal and sensitive medical information continues, identity and data security are crucial. Healthcare fraud, according to the NHS counter fraud authority (NHSCFA) costs the NHS approx. £1.25 Billion annually in the UK and is a white collar crime that has far greater consequences, often life-threatening, than pure financial fraud.
