A recently completed corporate site selection study compares the cost of operating a healthcare data security center in a series of 50 U.S. cities. The study includes cities housing significant concentrations of medical and healthcare industry operations as well as smaller regional centers of the nation’s $2.6 trillion healthcare services industry. The Boyd report, “Healthcare Services Industry: A Comparative Cost Analysis for Information Assurance Operations,” characterizes information security as a major new driver shaping strategic planning, capital spending and site selection within the healthcare services industry. The Boyd Company of Princeton, NJ, provides independent site selection counsel to leading U.S. and overseas corporations.
