healthcare data protection breaches

Healthcare data protection breaches

Despite the degree of trust we invest in doctors and other healthcare professionals, lapses in data protection still take place far too often within healthcare organisations. Given the sensitivity of medical information, healthcare data protection breaches can profoundly affect victims, many of whom can suffer from significant distress when they discover that their privacy has been compromised.

A number of serious data security incidents involving patient information have been reported in recent years, yet this negative coverage does not seem to have persuaded all healthcare organisations to improve their data protection strategies. Even small missteps can cause mass data exposure, which is why there is no room for error when it comes to data security.

At Your Lawyers – The Data Leak Lawyers – we specialise in data breach compensation claims. We are determined to hold organisations accountable for any failure to comply with data protection law. If you have had data compromised or exposed by a healthcare organisation, you may be entitled to claim compensation – you can contact us to receive free, no-obligation legal advice on your potential eligibility to claim here now.
