The Health Care Opportunity

Health Care is in an exciting time of change. Patients are demanding more convenient and personal care. Digital health is changing the way that doctors and patients interact. New technologies allow patients to track their own health and generate data that was previously not available to care providers. Additionally, health information exchanges are being created to enable access to electronic medical records across disparate organizations.

Hospitals, clinics, and health plans are faced with the challenge of reducing costs while maintaining quality. With the number of patients expected to rise how can hospitals treat patients with the limited number of beds and staff on hand? Shifting care delivery away from traditional hospitals by leveraging technologies like mobile and cloud may help. Moreover, new regulations are having a big effect on health insurance plans, requiring coordination with state health insurance exchanges.

How can security teams continue to defend the organization against conventional threats while evolving to meet new challenges? What can security do to proactively enable new business opportunities? How can you get the business to trust security enough to get a seat at the table?
