According to many industry experts, medical identity theft is on the rise because it is profitable, and the increasing use of electronic health records makes more data accessible. This is a great example of managing the balance between security and usability. Certainly, having medical records electronic and accessible 24 hours a day to health care practitioners is a great benefit to patients. However, as soon as the information becomes digital, it becomes susceptible to security breaches. Protect your medical identify like you protect your financial information.
