With more cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) being reported in countries outside of China, where the deadly virus has claimed the lives of a reported 2,771, world health leaders are preparing for a global pandemic that will provide a tsunami of health information for use by governments, world health agencies, and researchers, to hopefully control the future spread of the disease, develop vaccines, and share new learning to prevent future outbreaks.

That’s a good thing. But what about the privacy of that health information? Even in a crisis, health practitioners have a responsibility to protect privacy, which is a matter of trust between health professionals and the patient/consumer. And that is why we asked Lorraine Fernandes, president of the International Federation of Health Information Associates (IFHIMA), to report on this crucially important healthcare issue.

The live broadcast will also feature these other segments:

  • RegWatch: Stanley Nachimson reports on the latest regulatory news coming out of Washington, D.C.

  • The Coding Report: Laurie Johnson has an update on the deadly coronavirus that continues to dominate international as well as domestic news headlines.

  • Tuesday Focus: March 1 through 7 is National Sleep Awareness Week, and that is why we asked  Dr. Nick van Terheyden to report on the importance of sleep. 

  • News Desk: Timothy Powell, compliance expert and ICD10monitor national correspondent, will anchor the Talk Ten Tuesdays News Desk.

  • TalkBack: Kathy Pride, senior vice president of coding and documentation services for Panacea Healthcare will discuss a current topic that’s surfaced on her radar.
