Lost laptops plague health care organizations

2009 has not been kind to health care organizations. Already in the first month we have seen 2 incidents of lost/stolen laptops which contain patient information.

And then today in the news a report of the Department of Veterans Affairs announcing they have agreed to pay $20 million to current and former military personnel to settle a class action lawsuit on behalf of the men and women whose personal data was on a laptop computer stolen during a burglary. That is a big price to pay for the loss of one laptop and could have been avoided with the use of a technology such as Information Rights Management at a much smaller cost.
