What is the current state of the healthcare cyber landscape?
In healthcare we know that we don't have a good way to share information
We have issues with legacy technology
The attack surface has gotten a lot larger
What are some action plans that someone could take, post report, to begin to implement changes?
Drex DeFord, Executive Healthcare Strategist at CrowdStrike joins Bill on Newsday to talk about the economy, cyber labor issues and cyber liability insurance. We explore options for how a health IT leader can prepare for a down economy. While we have to brace ourselves for a slowdown in healthcare, agility will be essential. The Federal Reserve raised its benchmark interest rates three-quarters of a percentage point, its most aggressive hike since 1994. New research suggests nearly a third of cybersecurity professionals are planning to quit the industry, at a time when companies are struggling to protect their networks from attacks. How can healthcare or any system with confidential documentation survive with an impending catastrophe? Sophos observed that as healthcare ransomware attacks increase, organizations are struggling to obtain coveted cyber insurance policies. How is this survivable? How can we protect our servers and patients? Is self-insurance the only answer?

Today we have a special treat. Jonathan Manis, Senior VP and CIO for CHRISTUS Health walks us through his Opening Keynote “Re-Design Healthcare” presented at the Texas HIMSS conference. In this episode, it becomes utterly apparent that the healthcare industry needs a mind-shift. We delve into mobility, connectivity, consumerism and an alteration to “prediction and prevention” versus the “provision” of care to the sick and unwell. Healthcare can’t advance with a new approach until we stop using the old approach. How can we nix some of the complexity? Are customer experience expectations different across different countries? Healthcare consumers are stuck with what their insurance carriers’ want them to do. Will we ever break out of that model? How can we re-design healthcare?
In this digital hurricane world, healthcare is lagging way behind
