Mac McMillan serves as the National Chair for HIMSS Privacy and Security Policy Task Force. The newly-formed HIMSS Privacy and Security Policy Task Force was established to bring together a group of industry thought leaders to support HIMSS’s formal response to new legislation, regulation, as well as to develop HIMSS policy position papers and tools that relate to healthcare privacy and security. One of the goals of the Task Force is to collaborate with fellow professional organizations like HFMA, MGMA, AHIMA, HCCA, etc. to formulate a broader industry response, when appropriate, as well.
