    Health Care IT Still Needs Critical Care

    A new survey of 107 IT administrators, managers and C-level executives from organizations of various sizes conducted by GlobalSign, a provider of SSL certificates, finds that while there seems to be more focus on compliance and security issues than ever in the health care industry, progress to date has been somewhat limited.

    While there appears to be a lot of manual effort devoted to these tasks, health care organizations are having a tough time identifying technology products that will help manage the process. The end result seems to be a growing acceptance that fines associated with compliance and privacy may soon be just another cost of doing business in the health care industry versus something that needs to be addressed by putting in better IT systems to manage the process.
