Physician practices and specialty providers are not immune to data breaches or cyberattacks. As the healthcare market continues to consolidate, it is essential for all providers to prioritize security and privacy to protect their patients as well as their own business future.
The healthcare provider market is continuing to consolidate across the board. As hospitals and health systems merge into larger entities, they have also been adding physician practices. In fact, over 8,000 doctor’s offices were acquired by hospitals over the past 18 months.
The same dynamic is reshaping ambulatory care and specialty practices. Large physician groups and dental service organizations (DSOs) are steadily acquiring local practices at regional and national scale. Economics and technology are helping drive this evolution, enabling more efficient delivery of services across a broad spectrum of specialties: ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs), behavioral health, kidney dialysis centers, etc.
Consolidation, centralization, and change are disruptive forces which often have negative implications on security and privacy, at least in the short-term.
