Examine regulatory and ethical issues related to the use and management of health information technology.
The HIT Innovation Steering Committee within an organization is proactively looking at data breaches of other organizations to assist them with minimizing the risk to their data security and privacy. As an intern at this organization, you are to investigate and select a recently publicized data breach. Use information from the module readings, lectures and your own research. Create a Proposal for this Committee describing the identified data breach and strategies the organization can use to minimize security and privacy risks.
Create a written Proposal that includes:
- Description of the data breach, including outcomes for the affected organization (e.g., regulatory and financial)
- Discussion of the security, privacy, confidentiality, and ethical issues resulting from this breach
- A final proposal discussion that describes methods that can be implemented in an organization to minimize risk for a data and security breach
- Reference page of resources utilized
