Health IT

Health IT in the U.S. is a multifaceted industry with many different parts and specializations. Health IT includes a variety of sectors including electronic health records (EHR), personal health records (PHR), electronic prescribing and privacy and security, to name a few. The percentage of U.S. physicians that had EHR systems in their practices has increased dramatically in recent years. Likewise, the number of e-prescriptions made in the U.S. is on the rise in recent years.

Health data breaches

Health care data breaches are one of the primary concerns among health IT companies. Recent data suggests that the number of data breaches in the U.S. health and medical sector have increased over the last decade. Compared to other industries, data breaches in the healthcare segment are significantly more expensive. Despite the number of health data breaches increasing, the number of U.S. residents that have been affected seems to vary considerably from year to year.
