Recent media focus on incidents of privacy violations, identity theft and personal information mismanagement have increased regulatory and consumer pressure to prevent the disclosure or compromise of sensitive information. As a result, healthcare and pharmaceutical companies face unique challenges as they develop a strong privacy culture that ensures information security without impeding the necessary exchange of patient care information. It is imperative that companies address these global data-protection and privacy issues in a cost-effective manner to maintain a competitive edge amid the increasing regulatory and consumer demands for data protection.
