The Shifting Battleground for Healthcare Privacy

As more aspects of our lives move to the Internet, it should come as no surprise that our health data is ending up being used in many ways we never imagined. In fact, as Harry Nelson recently posted, “An investigation found that 33 of the top 100 American hospitals had an embedded ‘Meta Pixel’ tracker that sent a data packet to Facebook every time a patient clicked a button to schedule an appointment.” Ironically, the graphic used in this invitation was “borrowed” from an article featured in Cybersecurity News, in 2018, that detailed how concerns about data security and patient privacy were “holding physicians back from using virtual care technology,” according to a physician survey. Amazing, the difference a pandemic can make!

Between the growth of online health and wellness services resulting from the pandemic and the privacy concerns arising in the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs, HIPAA has in some respects been surpassed by more robust requirements under evolving state consumer privacy laws and Federal Trade Commission enforcement. Is health privacy enforcement coming back with a vengeance? During our Members’ Discussion we’ll look to hear your take on the intersection of Healthcare, Privacy and the Internet, and how any changes in health privacy laws and regulations could impact your healthcare business.

As always, we’ll also look to hear and discuss, “What’s Up” in your Healthcare sector, particularly any issues that are currently on the top of your mind.

RSVP today for what’s sure to be an informative wake-up call re how our customers’ and patients’ keystrokes could be putting us and our organizations at risk.
