The year of metamorphosis for healthcare data security

July 4, 2019

The management and storage of sensitive data in healthcare can be compared to the environment in which insects are born. Insects reside and lay eggs in a variety of shelters and locations. Wherever the insect can exist, it is likely to leave offspring to proliferate its life form. This happens in the transmission of healthcare information as the adoption of ever-emerging technologies and dependence on third-party services results in data proliferation and replication of sensitive patient data.

MHC Healthcare

MHC Healthcare is the oldest community health center, providing continuous health care since its incorporation in 1957. We began by providing medical care to migratory farm workers and other locals in Marana. By 1964 we had the funds to build a clinic specifically for MHC Healthcare and doubled our staff. We then established our Sliding Fee Scale, which made it possible to deliver healthcare to a wider population, especially low income and medically underserved patients.
