Definitive Healthcare, a healthcare intelligence company, outlined how to manage patient data and avoid cyberattacks.

1. Make sure the software is HIPAA-compliant. Using HIPAA-compliant software ensures patient data is protected.

2. Help staff understand best practices. Educating staff about common patient data safety risks such as email phishing, ransomware and more helps cut the risk of data breaches.

3. Store data on in-house servers. Data should be stored on secure servers and not on personal devices.
