US Representatives Jason Crow and Brian Fitzpatrick recently introduced a House companion to the Healthcare Cybersecurity Act, which advanced in the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs in March.

The American Hospital Association (AHA) expressed its support for the Healthcare Cybersecurity Act (S.3904/H.R.8806) in a letter by AHA Executive Vice President Stacey Hughes to US Representatives Jason Crow (D-CO) and Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA).

Crow and Fitzpatrick recently introduced a House companion to the Senate bill, which advanced in the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs in late March.

If passed, the bill would require the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) to collaborate with HHS to improve healthcare cybersecurity by making resources and providing cybersecurity training to healthcare asset owners.
