This past week, I spoke at an event where the discussion focused on the evolving threat landscape for cyberattacks in healthcare. As recent incidents with Scripps Health and others have shown, a business can literally grind to a halt when hit with a ransomware attack. 

Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend. We honor those who served to protect our nation.

This past weekend, I went looking for a pair of Sonos speakers for my surround sound system. The speakers were back-ordered on the company’s website with an estimated shipping date in mid-July. 

This week, I focus on AI in healthcare. The announcements about AI-enabled solutions and data-sharing agreements are coming fast and thick. Mayo Clinic is pushing the envelope on accelerating the development of AI-enabled using a “factory” approach. 

A digitally enabled health care system should be good news all around. Doctors can see more patients, patients can avoid unnecessary in-person visits, and physical facilities can be downsized. Telehealth companies are ramping up their lobbying efforts to push for payment parity and protect their COVID-era gains. As long as there is payment parity between in-person and virtual visits, healthcare providers shouldn’t care. So it would seem like a win-win.

Over the weekend, I finished reading a startlingly disturbing book on the murky and dangerous world of cybercrime that costs hundreds of billions every year, including healthcare. “This is how they tell me the world ends” by NYT reporter Nicole Perlroth is a stemwinder of a tale that walks us through the cyberweapons arms race currently raging among nation states, unseen by most of us.

Breathe. Breathe in the air. Don’t be afraid to care.

As a young engineering student in the eighties, my first summer internship was at a factory that produced liquified gases – oxygen, nitrogen, and others – for industrial use.
