The article talks about deploying IT security at most wired hospitals. While that was the case at most health care facilities, the levels of security vary widely. But hospitals that score high on Hospitals & Health Networks' annual Most Wired Survey and Benchmarking Study often have advanced security technologies that less wired hospitals may not. According to an October 2005 Forrester Research study, security implementations are more costly than expected.
