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 2016 was 0.0301% (less than four hundredths of one percent).
Even though health data breaches have become increasingly common, the DataFile error rate is far lower than the national trend. According to Becker’s Health IT & CIO Review, there was an overall average of one data breach per day by healthcare providers in 2016. In contrast, DataFile only had eight breaches and posted an accuracy rate of 99.97%, greatly outperforming the national average.
