IDC PlanScape: EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Compliance for IT Security in Healthcare

Authors: Jonas Knudsen, Adriana Allocato, Silvia Piai
Abstract

This IDC PlanScape is based on continuous research on healthcare IT trends, particularly GDPR and its implications. The research includes six in-depth executive interviews with healthcare providers and security specialists across Western Europe. The interviews contributed practical insights into implementation initiatives, best practices, and an interpretation of GDPR in a healthcare perspective.

"The GDPR can drive significant clinical and business benefits, but its implementation is a complex undertaking for healthcare provider organizations. It demands a step-by-step approach based on a shared vision between the IT department, clinicians, and the organization's executives," said Jonas Knudsen, research director, IDC Health Insights EMEA.
