Mental health apps and concerns over data breaches

mental health apps

Some statistics have put the number of downloads for mental health apps at one million since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, and these apps have been around for quite some time.

Healthcare data breach claims

healthcare data breaches

Over the many years we’ve been at the forefront of healthcare data breach claims, we’ve seen increasing numbers of new compensation cases, and we expect this to continue.

There’s also the fact that the nature of the data, when exposed, can mean that the impact for the victim is severe. This means people can be more likely to make a medical data breach compensation claim.

What this means is that the systems and software they’re using may not be good enough to prevent a cyberattack, which is a huge cause for concern.

We must appreciate that patients’ lives are at risk as well as the fact that any medical data exposure case is usually significant given the type of information involved. What needs to be done, and what can the victims to?
