Overview:

Data loss prevention (DLP) in health care—which mostly entails preventing patients’ protected health information (PHI) from falling into the wrong hands—requires well-conceived, well-enforced policies and the technology to back them up.


It would seem that DLP could be covered by either policy or technology; in fact, many hospitals leaned on policy at the expense of technology in the first decade and a half of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). But now that federal legislators recently enacted tough breach disclosure rules and gave state attorneys general the power to prosecute HIPAA violations, they’re looking into data encryption and transmission monitoring technology to aid in stopping data loss.
