On Tuesday, May 10, 2016, Clinton Mikel, a Partner at The Health Law Partners and Chairman of the eHealth, Privacy and Security Interest Group of the American Bar Association Health Law Section, will be a guest speaker at Politico’s “Outside, In: Unhealthy Hacking: Medical Privacy in the Age of Cyber Attacks,” a live event featuring leading voices in health care, technology, and policy discussing privacy and cybersecurity in the healthcare sector.
In addition to Clinton Mikel, panelists include Texas Representative Will Hurd, Leslie Krigstein, VP of CHIME (College of Healthcare Information Management Executives), and Deven McGraw, Deputy Director for Health Information Privacy, HHS Office for Civil Rights, among others.
Among the issues the panelists will address are the following: Can health care providers afford security? Is the cyber-kidnapping of hospitals the new normal? Is greater health information exchange going to lead expanded, dangers/hacks? Is the need to secure records another driver toward consolidation in health care, because of the costs? Do we need more congressional or regulatory action to assure our records are safe and secure?
