According to the Medical Group Management Association’s (MGMA) most recent MGMA Stat poll, almost half of healthcare organizations are using a mix of in-house and outsourced resources to manage cybersecurity.

MGMA polled 1,037 medical group leaders and 47 percent said their organization offers a mix of in-house and outsourced cybersecurity needs. Of the respondents, 31 percent noted that their organization manages cybersecurity needs in-house, and 21 percent noted that their organization outsources cybersecurity needs.

According to MGMA, one of the reasons many participants cited using a mix of in-house and outsourced resources is that their internal staff does not have the capability to do everything. For larger organizations, security is more likely to be managed entirely in-house. Many respondents whose organizations manage all cybersecurity needs in-house said they were part of a hospital system or other large organization.
