A data breach in the world of healthcare information technology (HIT) comes with a three-fold tear - patient data is compromised and vulnerable, patient trust is diminished or lost, and there exists a potential for up to millions of dollars in fines and potential insurmountable hardship for an organization. It seems that the amount of issues on our security plate are endless.  Malicious hackers, unsuspecting coworkers, bumbling business partners, and conflicting data needs all pose potential pitfalls. In this episode, Brian Quick, who has spent much of the last decade working to meet these challenges, helps us navigate.

It is estimated that 40,000 women will die of breast cancer this year, and between 45-90 out of every 100 women carrying BRCA genes (of which there are hundreds of BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations) will get breast cancer at some point in their lives.  Everyone agrees that early detection leads to more effective treatment and improved outcomes.  Often when we think of how we diagnose and chart the course for our patients, it starts by scanning the body with imaging equipment or analyzing blood or tissues. What if we told you that a SURVEY that makes meaningful use of demographics, family medical history, personal medical history, and lifestyle could help determine cancer risks and help tailor our approach to win the battle? Dr. Kevin Hughes joins us to discuss the realities and the possibilities.
