10 2021 Predictions Plus 2020 Results
Making annual predictions is always a little bit guessing and a lot of luck by the end of the year. No way any of us could have predicted where we would go throughout the year we just call 2020. Only history will tell us will give us the distance to understand the last 12 months. Who knows where we will go next but what the umm heck. We figured we would do it again.

New HIPAA Safe Harbor
A new HIPAA safe harbor rule is out there floating around now. A safe harbor is a legal term that refers to laws and regulations that specify that certain actions will be considered not to violate a given rule. It is often used to clarify big standards like HIPAA. Encryption is one of those things under the breach rules. Do you know about HR 7898?

Cyber Attacks Will Get Worse In 2021
A hospital President, after being hit by a cyber attack, said “We really did not anticipate the scope or the impact the attack had on our system and how far-reaching it was.”
This is just the beginning. Get prepared for more to come. Especially, with the success of the major SolarWinds infiltration. We knew things were getting worse weeks ago when we recorded this one. Where do we see things going?

Get off the sidewalk!
Amazon is rolling out a new “feature” called Sidewalk. If you have any Alexa devices or certain Ring devices on a network we say get off the Sidewalk! At least until you figure out how it can be secured.

Truly a life saver!
I have been nerding out to this AMAZING “HIPHHHA” (jk guys) HIPAA* to assert my advocacy rights for a loved one in a long term health facility. I would love if you guys could address the CMS 1135 waivers as it relates to patients’ record rights in this COVID-19 era.
Best podcast to help patient advocates yet!
Thank you both!
Great podcast with a little humor thrown in because...well, if you’re like me...this is some tedious content and makes my anxiety levels rise! The humor and relaxed talk/discussions make it more manageable for me to follow along!!! If you are responsible for compliance, HIPAA and/or privacy, this is for you!
Funny and knowledgeable
In so many of the episodes, I feel that these two understand all too well the pain of dealing with businesses these days who make up their own rules or try to circumvent existing policies when it comes to protecting data, regardless if it’s HIPAA related or not. Donna’s and David’s cohesiveness makes for an awesome show every time. Would love to catch up with them at a conference - glad they are successful and are willing to share so much of their experience and knowledge. They never disappoint so give this a listen!
