Human error biggest risk to health IT

Military health official warns that cyber hygiene falls short in health IT. Healthcare data breaches have hit more than nine out of 10 organizations in the field.

Medina would like to see a similar campaign in cyber, one that would call attention to the risks of clicking on unfamiliar links or opening attachments, leaving physical devices lying around or accessing work documents through a personal email account.

"These are examples of things that are so simple not to do," Medina said. "I'm certainly not saying that if we wash our hands we will prevent the spread of infection, nor am I saying that we can eliminate risk, but we certainly have the responsibility to reduce how much we contribute to the risk of information."
