GDPR status check: Healthcare faces daunting challenges

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which came into effect in May 2018, has had significant impacts on the healthcare industry. Healthcare organizations need to deploy a holistic approach to data management and improve GDPR compliance. Non-compliance is a problem in healthcare, largely due to a lack of investment and inadequate training. The industry must allocate more resources to create robust data protection frameworks and develop better incident triaging and security assessment practices. Regulators will conduct audits to ensure compliance with GDPR rules, and the public is concerned about the exposure of personal medical data. The GDPR also affects US healthcare providers operating in the European market and raises questions about how healthcare providers in the US handle GDPR rights.
