I’ve been featured in a number of online and print outlets recently — all related one one way or another to health data privacy and security:

Some of my thoughts from behind the paywall:

With the growth in value-based payment, there is increasing emphasis on remote monitoring and communications. Consumer grade monitors and smartphone apps need to be reviewed carefully for compliance before being put into service . . . .

[Covered Entites and Business Associates must] refresh [HIPAA] compliance training programs that may have grown stale. I’ve seen employees do the same online training and testing year after year . . . .

Internet of Things (IoT), cloud services compliance, incident response plans, and data retention and destruction schedules are other issues that warrant attention in the coming year as well.
