Why you should care about Data Sovereignty, Data Security and Digital Trust
July 25, 2023
It comes as no surprise that the number of individuals affected by cybersecurity attacks in healthcare tripled from 14 million in 2018 to 45 million in 2021. This leaves patients wondering whether or not their personal information is safe.
Privacy is a right
In a recent study conducted by the American Medical Association earlier this year to 1,000 patients across the United States, more than nine out of 10 (92%) patients reported that they believe data privacy is a right. Patients want accountability, transparency and control over how their data is used. 94% of patients responded that companies should be held legally accountable for the use of their health data. In addition, 93% of respondents want health application developers to be transparent about how their products use and share personal health data. Almost 80% of patients want the ability to “opt-out” of health data sharing and over 75% want to receive requests before a company uses their health data for a new purpose.
To achieve data sovereignty, data security and digital trust, we need to thoroughly understand the digital environment and embrace better technology. Cybersecurity plays a key role in ensuring that digital trust is created.
At Jonda Health we use end-to-end encryption, zero knowledge encryption and are HIPAA, GDPR and PDPA complaint to achieve data sovereignty, data security and digital trust to protect you and your patients.
