Overview: Medical identity theft is a growing threat in the nefarious world of identity theft. Although it is not as well-known as financial identity theft, the impact of medical identity theft is long-lasting and life-threatening. It affects one in four Americans and accounts for three percent of all identity theft cases, or approximately 500,000 cases per year. With only one arrest made in every 700 cases, medical identity theft costs consumers and businesses nearly $60 billion each year.
Unfortunately, the financial costs of a data breach and possible links to medical identity theft for an individual or a corporation are only part of the problem. In addition to the devastating economic ramifications, medical identity theft can literally be a matter of life and death. An incorrect entry such as an allergy or blood type in the medical records of a victim can lead to serious reactions or death.
This informative, unforgettable presentation takes participants step-by-step through the dangers physicians, patients, and businesses face, as well as tried and true strategies for preventing medical identity theft. Attendees learn:
