Artificial Intelligence is a promising technology that can bring data insights from vast datasets that would take too long for humans to analyze. Today, every industry is embracing AI, and the healthcare sector is not behind.  

The healthcare industry deals with tons of data and hospitals get data from different departments including patient reports, electronic health records, diagnostic reports, billing, and financial records. Managing all these can be time-consuming and chaotic. In such a scenario, AI has proven to bring a transformative revolution in maintaining such mountains of data.  

But with digitalization comes a risk of data security, and it’s a critical aspect to ensure the security of sensitive patient information. This raises the question of how AI helps in data security. 

Artificial Intelligence offers robust security through fraud detection and access controls to restricted people and strengthens health data governance, ultimately contributing to improved patient care. Let’s discover how AI makes this happen- 

Proper Data Management 

A plethora of data is generated daily, and this requires proper management to ensure its accuracy and relevancy. AI-driven tools go through a whole data management process from categorizing to organizing large datasets. This ensures that relevant data is readily available for further data analysis and facilitating in the decision-making process.  

Continuous Monitoring to Ensure Data Quality Standards 

AI through its advanced algorithms, automatically detects if data is meeting the predefined standards or lacking quality. Machine learning models can detect any anomalies, errors, or discrepancies in data that too in realtime. AI systems send alerts and notifications for an immediate investigation to reduce the risk of data standards and maintain its quality. Moreover, healthcare systems generate data in different formats making it challenging to extract information from unstructured clinical notes. But with Natural Language Processing (NLP) algorithms, backed with AI standardizes the whole process to make sure that data follows consistent formats  

Adoption of Encryption Techniques 

Healthcare organizations by leveraging Artificial intelligence can improve data security through the implementation of encryption techniques. It ensures that codes are applied to sensitive information to boost its authenticity, preventing data breaches. This robust encryption serves as a great defense mechanism to fight against potential cyber threats, making it difficult to manipulate the data.  

Behavioral Biometric Authentication 

This technology works in the background and continuously monitors user behavior, so whenever any activity is performed it gets tracked. This innovative way of user authentication ensures transparency within health systems, AI creates unique behavioral profiles for all authorized users, and in case of any deviation from required patterns prompts alerts. This helps healthcare organizations minimize fraudulent activities and prevent users from unauthorized access.  

Embracing Predictive Analytics for Probable Risk Assessment 

Predictive analytics uses historical data to detect patterns that could give a tentative idea if there is a potential happening of data risk. It can track the number of logins attempts and in case human behavior changes, it proactively detects and alerts. It enables healthcare organizations to proactively implement additional data security measures and stay ahead of potential threats.

Final Words 

In a nutshell, data governance in the age of generative AI is undergoing a profound transformation. The integration of AI in health data governance enhances data security by applying the above-listed measures. 

 At Canopus Infosystems, we understand the role data plays for any organization and the importance of data security, for protecting sensitive patient information.
