Practical Paranoia - Celebrating our Cybersecurity Team

We've oft posted about alert fatigue and physician burnout. Despite our best efforts to design the Connect Care clinical information system for efficient interaction, we continually seek ways to reduce clinicians' total informational burdens.

A recent CHIME newsletter article describes how alert fatigue is not just for clinicians! Fascinating to read about the struggles of our cybersecurity teams, who are constantly bombarded by alerts to possible new security threats. Their work is high-stakes-high-stress. Health care organizations crippled by hackers suffer great financial, reputational and health care losses.
