The American Medical Association (AMA) partnered with Accenture to conduct a first-of-its-kind 1,300-physician survey to assess physician awareness, preparedness, and perception of HIPAA and cybersecurity related issues. Questions targeted various aspects of HIPAA compliance and good cyber hygiene practices—delving into the “what, why, and how” physicians were taking those actions. Results have identified gaps and opportunities for cross-industry collaboration. This research is the first step towards understanding the physician perspective and needs on these issues.
