The ways in which we collect, utilize and share data is changing by the hour. Our collective capacity to progress in information application and dissemination allows us to have vital information when it is needed most. This new set of data rules is of particular importance to healthcare providers.
Protection and management of patient data are key components of patient safety and health in today’s healthcare landscape. Digitization and connectivity have changed the way healthcare providers use and share data across multiple platforms and devices. This wave of data management aims to improve:
- Patient care
- Information security
- Data access
- Records reliability
However, this progress has also presented healthcare providers with issues regarding data safety and privacy.
UL is dedicated to protecting patient and employee data through testing for healthcare systems and offering software tools to decrease your administrative burdens so you can focus on important day-to-day provider tasks. Through our diverse array of offerings, we enable you to spend more time with your patients.
