Americans are increasingly apprehensive about the privacy of their personal information. A recent Pew Research Center survey found that approximately four out of five Americans are concerned about how their data is used, think the risks of companies collecting their data outweigh the benefits and believe they have little control of their data. The concerns are particularly heightened when it comes to health data. Today, companies that operate mobile apps, search engines, social media platforms and health-oriented websites can have more health information about many of their users than a hospital has about most of its patients. Yet these technology companies typically are not subject to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) or other health privacy laws. The current pandemic, and the resulting increase in health data sharing, makes privacy challenges more pressing.
Join us for a webinar, based on a recent white paper authored by Manatt, funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, to examine current holes in privacy protections, data use implications for both the industry and consumers, and options for developing a framework for collecting, using and disclosing health data.
eHI CEO Jennifer Covich Bordenick and eHI Vice President and Senior Counsel Alice Leiter will be participating as guest speakers.
