Advanced technologies are being implemented in assisted living facilities across the country. These technologies improve resident safety, streamline delivery of services, and serve to manage healthcare records in an efficient and secure manner. Unfortunately, as new technologies are adopted, new risks emerge. Considerations of resident privacy and data security are at the forefront of risk management, especially when cyber criminals are intent on stealing sensitive information for illicit use. Along with specialized cyber insurance, senior care facilities must balance the benefits and drawbacks of technology in their operations, ensuring that their residents have the privacy and the information safety they deserve.
