Speaking during a policy update during the CHIME Fall CIO Forum, Leslie Krigstein, vice president of congressional affairs at CHIME, said Sen. Mark Warner, D-Virginia, vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee and co-founder of the Senate Cybersecurity Caucus, will likely introduce healthcare cybersecurity legislation. The senator has pushed the healthcare sector on cybersecurity gaps and the need to strengthen cyberpolicies. 

Federal lawmakers also have shown interest in a "Cures 2.0," a second iteration of the 21st Century Cures Act, CHIME policy leaders said. Politico has reported that Reps. Fred Upton, D-Colorado, and Diana DeGette, D-Colorado, are working a healthcare-focused bill centered on interoperability and patient access.
