International Privacy + Security Forum
Traditional patient records have long been based in doctors’ offices, hospital, and clinics. As an international development, however, patient-data is increasingly captured on mobile devices or generated through sensors and other medical devices. To further public health and medical research, the captured physiological data can be combined with behavioral and environmental data of individual patients as well as with large population databases. Such innovative data use challenges existing approaches in U.S. and EU law for health data. This session features lawyers working through a practical problem-set to illustrate international approaches to these regulatory challenges.
