For years, identity theft has been one of the fastest-growing crimes in America, and the statistics are sobering: In 2017, 16.7 million people were victims of the identity theft, with losses totaling $16.8 billion. Healthcare patients face a special risk since providing social security numbers is critical to many industry processes and technologies. From the youngest infant to the oldest adult, no one is safe from this crime—though seniors are especially vulnerable thanks in part to their good credit and unfamiliarity with risk factors.
What are you doing to protect your patients—and yourself—from this rising threat?
Join identity theft expert Kim Smith in this live webinar as she provides an overview of identity theft, how it happens, who it happens to, and what the results can be. Smith will reveal the populations most vulnerable to identity theft, how to gauge a patient’s exposure, how social media could add to the problem, and what to do if identity theft strikes.
After attending this instructive session, you will be able to define identity theft and its current iterations, and you will understand the risk factors. You’ll not only know how identity theft can impact your patients, you’ll also be armed with important tools to prevent breaches. Plus, you’ll be able to look for identity theft warning signs and take action to lessen the risk to patients—or respond appropriately if an identity is stolen.
Here is a taste of what you will learn:
