4th Annual RSPN Business Trends Forum: Healthcare & Technology.
Keynote Speaker: PA State Senator John P. Sabatina Jr.
Panel One: Technology’s Disruption in Healthcare
Summary: Technology is revolutionizing all aspects of health care and wellness. Society in general, and healthcare and life-science companies alike, are turning to technology to solve many of their greatest healthcare challenges, and the investment community is channeling billions into this health-tech revolution. This panel will discuss the disruption that technology is making in healthcare delivery models, drug research and clinical trials, people’s overall wellness and the business and legal landscape surrounding this technology revolution in healthcare.
Moderator: Vlad Tinovsky, Esquire, Tinovsky Law Firm
Susan B. Thomas Remarks: Introduction to District 1199C Training & Upgrading Fund’s Greater Philadelphia Healthcare Partnership and the federal grant for on-the-job-training and placement for healthcare and health information workers, including benefits to employers.
Panel Two: Cybersecurity and Privacy Issues and Trends
Summary: Recent headlines have been dominated by reports of massive hacker attacks and other data breaches resulting in improper disclosure of sensitive consumer information, governmental scrutiny and crippling fines and penalties. With the value of medical records surging, healthcare providers and companies that handle medical and other sensitive data are increasingly targets of hackers, insider threats and other malfeasance. According to a recent article by Reuters, your medical information is worth 10 times more to hackers than your credit card! In healthcare, as technology continues to play an ever-expanding role and as healthcare becomes increasingly data-driven, data security and effective management of cybersecurity — as well as HIPAA/ HITECH Act and other similar privacy standards — will become much more pressing priorities for healthcare providers and other companies that conduct business in the healthcare setting. This panel will address privacy and cybersecurity issues in healthcare as well as in other settings, both from a legal and a technical perspectives. The panelists will address recent legal and other developments involving cybersecurity and privacy, governmental regulation, prophylactic measures, best practices and risk mitigation measures, as well as discuss cybersecurity challenges.
