What are Gerry and Steve talking about this week?

Steve had an opportunity to talk with the AMA and provide a deeper dive into their comments to HHSs’ recent request for information related to HIPAA updates. The guys dig into a rare instance of federal criminal prosecution of HIPAA violation. They finish up discussing an FTC fine of TikTok, a popular social media app, for violating COPPA.

As always they end with One Cool Thing.
