Re: More security needed
Yeah, 3rd party, middleware security solutions are the answer. Sure they are.

 

Go watch the old movie The Net and then come back and post some more on this. And, no, don't post about how Sandra Bullock is hottest programmer ever, if her character was real.

Re: hack
Good question, David. In the case of DrFirst, they've brought in some big guns from the medical and technology fields, but your question is very valid.

Re: hack
This one was a government IT system and one that's been around for a while. I wonder if commercial products would be more or less vulnerable.

More security needed
With the proliferation of electronic health records, we will unfortunately be seeing more of these stories. Security will become increasingly important in the recording, storing and transferring of information. The private sector is becoming more attentive to this area. with companies like DrFirst providing robust solutions for securing not only health care information, but also for the communication among healh care providers.

This one was caught, but it does make you wonder about all the vulnerabilities that were not spotted before a hacker makes use of them.
