Cyber security

In an effort to streamline healthcare operations and overcome challenges posed by incomplete or incorrect data systems, technology maximally integrates system data. This system aims to provide clinics and doctors with easier access to comprehensive and accurate patient information, as well as prevent data leaks. 

Why Security and Data Management are Matters?

Security and data management have great impacts on several aspects:

    1. Patient Privacy

      Sensitive and personal data, including medical history, diagnoses, treatments, and contact details, constitute the patient information stored within clinics. To preserve the confidentiality and prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, it is essential to uphold robust security measures. Safeguarding patient privacy is not merely an ethical responsibility but also a legal obligation, necessitating compliance with relevant regulations and guidelines. Adhering to these measures helps build trust with patients, ensures the integrity of healthcare systems, and mitigates the risks associated with data breaches or privacy violations.

    2. Preventing Data Breaches

      Due to the invaluable patient data, healthcare organizations become enticing targets for cybercriminals. In the first quarter of 2023, healthcare firms reported 145 data breaches, as stated by the U.S. government’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR). These numbers follow a previous year with 707 incidents and 51.9 million data records leaked. Data security breaches can expose personal information, resulting in identity theft, fraudulent activities, and various other malicious acts. To counteract these threats, it is crucial to implement strong security measures, including firewalls, encryption, access controls, and regular security audits. By adopting such strong safeguards, healthcare services can effectively protect patient data, reducing the vulnerability to breaches and ensuring the integrity and confidentiality of sensitive information.

    3. High-Quality Patient Care

      Efficient data management plays an important role in ensuring the availability and accessibility of patient information. It empowers healthcare professionals to efficiently retrieve and share patient data, facilitating seamless coordination across departments and facilities. By enabling access to accurate and up-to-date data, effective data management significantly enhances diagnostic accuracy, helps informed treatment decisions, and ultimately improves overall patient outcomes. A well-organized data management system enhances healthcare efficiency, enables collaborative decision-making, and contributes to the delivery of high-quality patient care.

Enhancing security and improving data management are crucial aspects of modern healthcare services, and several measures can be taken to achieve these goals. To address the growing concerns around cybersecurity and the efficient handling of data, organizations can implement various strategies and tools. Additionally, adopting a strong Clinical Management System like Vanda also adds an extra layer of protection with seamless data management. Clinics can leverage Vanda’s numerous advantageous features to gain unfair benefits in their operations, such as:

Integrated with Ministry of Health Programs

A centralized data system marks a significant step forward in addressing one of the persistent issues faced by healthcare professionals, incomplete or incorrect patient data. This innovative system enables the gathering and storage of information from diverse origins, such as the Singapore National Electronic Health Records (NEHR) and Healthier SG.

The integration with NEHR and Healthier SG brings together the data from various healthcare sources, including hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare providers. This integration ensures that patient health information is seamlessly recorded, updated, and accessible across the entire healthcare network with Vanda as the main solution, and more integration will be coming soon.

Role Based Access Management (RBAC)

Vanda uses a role-based access control (RBAC) system, which plays a crucial role in enhancing security and facilitating efficient data management. With RBAC, access to sensitive data and system functionalities is granted based on predefined roles and responsibilities within the organization. Clinics can establish a well-defined hierarchy of roles, such as administrators, healthcare providers, and support staff, each with specific permissions and access levels. 

Healthcare providers, on the other hand, are granted access to patient data relevant to their responsibilities, enabling them to view and update medical records, input diagnoses, and prescribe treatments. RBAC ensures that employees only have access to the data and functionalities necessary for their roles, minimizing the risk of unauthorized access and data breaches.

This feature helps prevent unauthorized access and ensures that only approved sources are able to interact with Vanda, also offers flexibility in managing data sharing and collaboration. Clinics can carefully select and approve external organizations or systems that need to exchange data with Vanda, such as laboratories, referral networks, or health information exchanges. This controlled approach enhances data governance and minimizes the exposure of sensitive information to unauthorized entities.
