It is essential for the healthcare communities to understand the technology that they use. It should, of course, be more than switching on their computing devices! I am not suggesting that everyone should aim for a CS major. This was an interesting blurb that I stumbled over:

I have come across an undue criticism of Telegram that doesn’t have “end-to-end” encryption and that healthcare requires a “bullet proof” system to keep the patient data intact. The problem is that Facebook owns complete metadata which is enough to reconstruct any digital trail. The encryption is a farce. There has been no attempt to understand how the encryption has been enforced.
