2017 ROI INCIDENT REPORT

Like all covered entities and business associates, DataFile has patient privacy
as one of our highest priorities.

In an effort to be open and transparent, DataFile Technologies publishes an annual Incident Report to illustrate our accuracy and communicate our error rate, defined as total breaches and violations handled by DataFile which resulted in unauthorized disclosures.

While our goal is zero errors, we are human and will occasionally make mistakes. We are proud to report the DataFile ROI error rate for 2017 was 0.0314% (less than four hundredths of one percent).

Health data breaches have become increasingly common. According to Becker’s Health IT & CIO Review, the industry average exceeded one data breach per day by healthcare providers in 2017. In contrast, DataFile greatly outperformed the national average, with only eleven single patient breaches resulting in a 99.97% accuracy rating.
