Data Privacy & Security

Patient information includes personal demographics, diagnoses, treatment records, and financial data, all of which are sensitive data and needs to be safeguarded.
Why is Data Privacy & Security important?

Why is Data Privacy & Security important?

Healthcare is a highly data-intensive business. Any data breach of sensitive patient information would not only erode our patients’ trust in us and compromise our reputation, it will, more critically, also affect our ability to deliver quality care.

At IHH Healthcare, we use data for research, innovation, business and operations improvement, business development and investment purposes, which ultimately helps us save lives and advance medical care.

We aim to keep improving on cybersecurity by aligning ourselves with the ISO27001 standard for IHH Healthcare critical systems. We also aim to engender greater trust by substantially aligning ourselves with the APEC Cross-Border Privacy Rules (CBPR) System.
