Prevention VS. Response


In today’s world of high-speed-everything, it is easy to understand why compliance takes a back seat to more pressing concerns like maintaining a profitable facility. But let’s face it, regulators are not going away and neither are the thieves who are waiting to pounce on your patient and employee data. The best approach is to implement a program before an incident occurs, which includes a plan for handling corrective actions.
