We recently held our second informative webinar focused on the security risks and vulnerabilities of using outdated software in your medical practice. Part of the issue with keeping software, hardware, and other devices secure, centers around understanding that outdated and unpatched systems are open and highly susceptible to cyber-attacks.
Once again, we partnered with senior HIPAA security expert Michael McCoy who discussed the process of conducting an organizational risk assessment and offered guidance on how to identify security risks and protect critical patient data. Critical mitigation activities are needed and necessary but can be a complicated process as each system is unique.

Recent updates to the HIPAA Security Rule were also discussed on our webinar, and the new guidelines include discouraging the use of unsupported software. A medical practice using software with no security updates will pose great security risks, which would be considered a HIPAA violation. In the webinar content we covered how to eliminate outdated/unsupported software from your practice.
With all the time spent within your practice’s EHR, along with the potential for a serious cyber-attack, we advise our clients to use Nuance Dragon Medical One (DMO), the #1 Best in KLAS, HITRUST CSF-Certified front-end speech recognition documenting solution. DMO assists physicians and clinicians in dictating and documenting up to 45% faster than typing and keeps patient data safe and secure via 256 bit encryption. Using your own voice to document reduces the time spent typing expansive notes into your EHR, as we speak up to 4x as fast as we type.
These are just a few benefits of using DMO at the right place in your practice’s workflow. We know it can help address and mitigate security issues your busy practice is facing, and ensure your practice is keeping patient data safe, secure, and HIPAA compliant. There are many security and productivity benefits when you make the decision to add Dragon Medical One (DMO) into your clinical workflow.
