CFOs taking the lead on cybersecurity
I just came across a recent story noting that Cybersecurity is a top priority for boards of healthcare organizations, and that CFOs are increasingly stepping into the role of overseeing cybersecurity compliance.
Here’s a recent article published by HFMA that also addresses this topic: hfma.org/topics/article/62568.html
How is your organization dealing with this issue? Is cybersecurity something that’s recently been added to your plate? And what are some of the key questions and biggest challenges you are facing in ensuring HIPAA compliance and preventing data breaches? Can you share any insights based on your experience?
Training front end staff to collect from patients

Attending HFMA's Annual Conference as a staff member is a little bit like entering a bubble for four days. There's so much to do, and all in one setting (this year, the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando) that you tend to lose track of what's happening in the outside world.
That wasn't the case as much at this year's event, at least not last Monday. The White House's executive order on transparency for hospitals garnered all sorts of buzz at the conference.
I'd be very interested in hearing early reactions to the order from members of this forum. From what we know about it so far, does it seem reasonable to you? What will you be watching for as more details become known?
