• Privacy and disclosure issues (and tips for getting employees to understand who, what, where, and when they may disclose)
• Breach trends and issues with cybersecurity
• The scary business of removable media like laptops, thumb drives, and cell phones (if it can walk away, it will)
• Guidance on PMI research programs and the “All of US” campaign (How do you protect information when HIPAA doesn’t cover it?)
• Advice for dealing with Certified EHR Technology
