I attended HIMSS this year as a Social Media Ambassador. I spoke with quite a number of healthcare innovators and some of those conversations will be coming your way as internet radio broadcasts and podcasts via HealthcareNOW Radio, on Harlow On Healthcare. Here’s a ten-minute video for your listening and viewing pleasure, courtesy of HIMSS.tv (which debuted at HIMSS 2018)wherein I discuss the pros and cons of a strict approach to health data security with Dr. Nick van Terheyden (aka @drnic1).
A few of you strict constructionists out there may ask, Why is he bringing up the interoperability trust framework in a conversation about security? Well, in my view, to the extent trust can be established so as to enable more automated or regularized sharing through secure channels, other forms of sharing will be limited, thereby lowering the likelihood of insecure transfers of healthcare data. Interoperability, properly implemented, is likely to improve health data security.
Enjoy the video and I hope to see you at the next in-real-life meeting of healthcare innovators.
