November 3, 2020: Bill and Drex get political. There’s no doubt that COVID has played a major role in how voters will decide in this election. What will health IT look like if Trump is re-elected? What pathway lays ahead if Biden wins? Why is it more stressful to have political conversations with people you disagree with than in previous election years? Can we look past the political division and dig deeper into the human psyche? Security is also on the table today. Cybercriminals are targeting hospitals during the pandemic because of their vulnerability. And unfortunately smaller health systems don’t have enough resources to put together an adequate response plan. What other options do they have? Where can they go for help?
