As the global pandemic drags into its second year, pressure grows on the healthcare sector – whether public or private, federal, state or local – to deliver innovative, data-based services to patients.


The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, in its 2020-2025 Federal Health IT Strategic Plan, identified building a secure, data-driven ecosystem to accelerate research and innovation and connecting healthcare with health data as two of its primary objectives.


At the same time in June, the American Hospital Association released a letter to President Biden asking for help with cybersecurity, noting that “the healthcare industry faces relentless cybersecurity threats that have grown in magnitude and complexity … [and] have worsened over the course of the pandemic, especially in the proliferation of ransomware attacks.”


Join us to hear thought leaders from government and industry discuss the IT challenges and opportunities facing the healthcare sector as it faces the twin threats of the pandemic landscape and cyber risk.
