Healthcare 2.0: A New Paradigm for a Secure and Streamlined Healthcare Industry
Publication Date: April 2016
Healthcare spending losses to fraud and abuse total $272 billion a year, but no single part of the healthcare system is responsible. Each stage of healthcare has risks of fraud, errors, waste and abuse. These vulnerabilities can be reduced at every stage by implementing an identity management system based on smart card technology.
The infographic, “Healthcare 2.0: A New Paradigm for a Secure and Streamlined Healthcare Industry,” depicts the impact of smart card technology on the future of healthcare identity authentication, and suggests how current challenges can be solved through interoperability, increased security, and multi-factor authentication.
The infographic was developed by the Alliance’s Health and Human Services Council, and includes:
- An overview of the state of today’s healthcare market, and the existing impact of medical identity theft, fraud and abuse, and patient matching errors
- Solutions to make healthcare more secure at every stage, including strong authentication, secure payment, chain of trust and accountability
- Considerations for all stages of care, including pre-treatment, treatment, documentation, billing and post-treatment
