February 8, 2021: Mari Savickis, Vice President, Public Policy at CHIME joins Bill for the news today to discuss the HIPAA security rule, information blocking, vaccination, cybersecurity and more. What is the talk on the Hill about vaccination? How are we doing so far with logistics? Will we hit Biden’s promise of 100 million vaccinations in the first 100 days? The single biggest use case ever for patient identification is a pandemic. Why are some health systems able to set up efficient processes with their EMR while others struggle? Cybersecurity. It's a journey. Not a destination. There’s lots of problems along the road. And the health sector has been behind the eight ball. There's never going to be a time where you're completely inoculated from a cyber threat but the industry has been working damn hard these past few years trying to catch up.
