Eric Fader was quoted in an article, "Cybersecurity Costs Could Prompt Future Hospital Mergers," published in Bloomberg BNA's Health IT Law & Industry Report. Fader told Bloomberg BNA that the costs of implementing state-of-the-art cybersecurity measures have been increasing in recent years, which is one factor explaining the rising pressure on many smaller hospitals to merge or be acquired. However, Fader added, declining reimbursements and increased competition from larger hospitals are also factors that have encouraged consolidation. "It's hard to say that cybersecurity is the key piece, but it's certainly a part of the puzzle," Fader said.
