In 2016, the Ponemon Institute revealed that nearly 90% of healthcare organizations had suffered a data breach in the previous 2 years. Often overlooked in the healthcare cybersecurity discussion, post-acute care providers face the same threats and regulations as acute care organizations. Covenant Care, a national post-acute care organization centered in Aliso Viejo, California, provides quality 24-hour a day care ranging from short-term rehabilitation therapy to skilled nursing care. With over 8,000 healthcare professionals located across 56 locations in seven states, Covenant Care faced a number of challenges trying to ensure the security and role-based access of their information.
