Why this post?

Over the past few months we have seen a number of reports on breaches of healthcare organizations and medical device manufacturers where the suspected or documented target was intellectual property data related to medical devices.  Some of these recent cases have received wide press coverage.

As a result, the FBI has issued a warning to US healthcare companies that they may be the target of further cyberattacks (FBI warns healthcare firms they are targeted by hackers). The document indicated that several companies in the sector had been targeted and intellectual property, rather than personal data or PHI, may be the main target of the attacks.

"These actors have also been seen targeting multiple companies in the healthcare and medical device industry typically targeting valuable intellectual property...

The demand for professionals to fill health IT jobs continues, as noted in this recent article, in AllVoices: ”The U.S. Department of Labor has earmarked both healthcare and information technology as two job sectors that are expected to show real growth in the next few years, but when the two are combined, the job prospects soar.” I asked one of our HIMSS e-Executive Mentors and former HIMSS Board member, David Finn, to share his perspective on the health IT job market.  It all comes down to leadership . . . my comments can be found on the HIMSS Blog at:

One of my very first IT assignments was to write the coding standards for a major university - - we did all our own development at that time and were about to completely re-do all major systems (billing, collections, records and registration, scheduling, grading - - everything).  My writing experience had previously been journalistic or for the theatre.  So, I started asking people who had more experience.  First stop was a very senior manager who pointed to two shelves full of three inch, three ring binders on his bookshelf.  “Here’s a good example,” he said, “of...

Well, this is the time of year when everyone involved in health information technology, directly and indirectly, from the providers, payers, government, banking, venture capitalists and vendors begin to turn their attention to HIMSS.  This year HIMSS is in Las Vegas - -  after a long absence from this venue.  For many years, Vegas didn’t have the classroom capacity required but that has changed and HIMSS will be making a return engagement in February.  First, remember we’re on a new schedule this year Monday through Friday (February 20 – February 24).

If you haven’t booked rooms or travel, get on it!  If you haven’t registered better get that done, too.  And then start working on your “dance card”.  The days fill up fast and five days at CHIME & HIMSS disappears very quickly.  And that is just educational sessions, booth visits and professional association meetings or Symposia.  Don...
