Re: Pragmatic Advice but...
I agree with what you are saying; however, it is well past the time when we can start with the fundamentals. Healthcare has historically been way behind other industries when it comes to security and they are starting to pay for it. It is time to catch up.

I also believe it is too late to think in terms of telehealth systems as on-premise. Every telehealth system I have looked at in the last year (and there have been many) all connect to the cloud, even systems with on-premise servers have a cloud connection. We must treat telehealth privcy and security proactively or we will always be chasing the newest threats and vulnerabilities. Telehealth is not going away so we better secure it. 

I would really like for more people to join our CSA Health Information Management work group and help develop best practices for securing all healthcrae in the cloud.

Pragmatic Advice but...
This is pragmatic advice but as security professionals it seems like we are always putting the cart before the horse and it most cases its not our fault that we do. This pandemic has forced us to think of security and technology as a whole in a different lens. But even before this the Healthcare sector, along with education were hopelessly behind the security best practice model with even entire hospitals falling victim to having to pay ransoms.

So the way I see it we can either treat this new venture in one of two ways. Proactively or reactively. Push towards the cloud with security ingrained in each lifecycle step of that transition. Or look to rectify the security shortcomings of on-premise environments and then iteratively transition to the cloud. Both of which I noticed many companies neglecting to heed. 

Not trying to be cynical just trying to be realistic. We are still in an era where many comapnies do not heed the security warnings until they are burnt by the stove. I hope one day that they will start learning from the mistakes of their fallen comrades instead of hoping that they aren't the ones that end up in the news.
