Telemedicine companies say they’re used to meeting strict data security requirements, and deregulation will make it easier for them to reach patients.

“I think it’s a balance. For decades the telemedicine industry has been overregulated,” Jon Pearce, CEO of telemedicine company Zipnosis, told Tonya. “On the flip side, I do think we need to make sure any telemedicine providers are held to basic protections. Generally deregulating it and making it easier for patients to access it is great.”

The Justice Department is investigating the spread of an SMS-based disinformation campaign claiming that President Trump would implement a national quarantine as well as a possible attack meant to knock out computer networks at the Department of Health and Human Services.
