Protecting Your Patients From Medical Identity Theft Podcast
Congdon: Hello everyone. This is Ken Congdon, Editor In Chief of Healthcare Technology Online. Welcome to another installment of our executive podcast series.
Medical identity theft is becoming a concern of epidemic proportions for patients, healthcare providers and healthcare plans. Not only is the Federal Government cracking down on fraud, but healthcare providers are striving to implement policies, procedures and technologies that will help them minimize the risk of data exposure.
Here to speak with us more on this topic today is Leif Pietila, Healthcare Industry Segment Manager at MegaPath, a provider of voice and data security technology solutions. Thanks for joining us today Leif.
Pietila: Hey Ken, thank you. I really appreciate you inviting me back.
