Robert Felps, Third Rock CEO, was one of three panelists for the Health Tech ATX conference in Austin, TX on October 7.  There were over 75 Healthcare executives and security experts in attendance. One of the main focuses was on the extreme rise in Healthcare cyber-security breaches and how to address them.  HIPAA compliance was the number one response from the panelist.  You must do a Risk Assessment to know what issues you have and prioritize the remediation of those issues.  The changes brought about by HITECH and later updates to HIPAA make security the focus and every healthcare practice and business associate needs to start working on their security of PHI.
