Jason Crow, D-Colo., and Brian Fitzpatrick, R-Pa., for introducing a House companion to the Healthcare Cybersecurity Act (S.3904/H.R.8806), AHA-supported legislation that would improve collaboration and coordination between the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency and Department of Health and Human Services.
