As online healthcare has been growing and more and more mental health sessions are carried out online, patients are also looking for healthcare providers who are more protective about their private information. According to Accenture, 25% of patients were impacted by healthcare provider data breaches between 2015 and 2019, and 16% of those affected will incur costs totaling $56 billion over the next five years. The research also reported that nearly 50% of the patients would prefer to choose a safer healthcare provider if they were told that their information is stolen.

So what’s the most effective method to protect patients’ data in the ear of digital health? According to the 8th Annual Industry Pulse Report from Change Healthcare and the Healthcare Executive Group, 79% of respondents said that diagnostic apps would have the greatest potential to transform healthcare with 54% saying the health monitoring device would be impactful. It is evident that the mobile and app-focused platforms share a significant role in keeping patients’ data safe from risks.
