In this article published by the International Association of Privacy Professionals, Partner Kirk Nahra explores how we got to where we are today with health care privacy.
Excerpt: In the U.S., we do not, today, have a national privacy law. Pressure from the EU, via the General Data Protection Regulation, and from California, via the California Consumer Privacy Act, are driving an extensive national debate on this topic. But how is this pressure impacting the health care industry, both today and going forward? This two-part series will first explore how we got to where we are today with health care privacy. The second installment, in the next edition of The Privacy Advisor, will assess options for moving forward to address emerging gaps and an evolving health care industry.
