Privacy and Consent Management Considerations when Sharing Clinical Data

PRESENTER: Hans J. Buitendijk

As a patient’s electronic health information is increasingly being shared across providers, payers, public health, tremendous benefits are being gained having the ability to access a patient’s complete record. At the same time, the variety of privacy policies across federal, state, and local jurisdictions, and the need for patients to be able to restrict some or all of their data to certain providers and/or caregivers continues to create challenges enabling patients and providers to responsibly share all relevant and authorized data. This presentation highlights these challenges and how advances in standards and technology are aiming to overcome these challenges.
