2020 Healthcare Regulations – #HITsm Chat Topic

We’re excited to share the topic and questions for this week’s #HITsm chat happening Friday, 1/10 at Noon ET (9 AM PT). This week’s chat will be hosted by John Lynn (@techguy) on the topic of “Healthcare Regulations”.

We all know that regulations are a major part of healthcare and that’s not going to change any time soon. In fact, in many ways that’s a good thing since it requires companies to ensure that the things they’re doing in healthcare are safe and secure. However, sometimes the government over steps or implements poor regulations that cause more harm than the benefits they create.

As we head into 2020, there are a lot of regulations on the cusp. We’re waiting for the new information blocking regulations. There’s talk of revisions to HIPAA or possible some other broader patient and consumer privacy regulations. MACRA and MIPS will continue to evolve and much more. At this week’s chat we’ll dive into all of these and talk about what we see coming down the pipe as far as healthcare regulation. Plus, we’ll discuss what regulations need to go and others we wish would happen.

Join us for this week’s #HITsm chat where we’ll be discussing government regulations in healthcare.
