Episode 5- Privacy by Design; Cybersecurity as a Patient Safety Issue with Laura Hoffman from the AMA

September 14, 2020

This week we welcome Laura Hoffman (@lgh_dc on Twitter), Assistant Director, Federal Affairs with the American Medical Association. 

Laura talks about how the surge in telemedicine not only advanced policy but also allowed physicians to offer telemedicine services from home. That opportunity, without the proper safeguards could result in privacy and cybersecurity issues that could jeopardize the patient/provider relationship.
