Safeguarding an individual’s protected health information has taken on increased importance in recent years as the use of digital health tools has proliferated across the healthcare ecosystem.  This session will discuss how the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA)  and the European Union’s (E.U.’s) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) are working within their jurisdictions to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of patient data.  As healthcare delivery becomes more global, the panel will also consider where further guidance is needed as we move closer to cross-jurisdiction and geographic alignment between HIPAA and GDPR.

Other Speakers:

Elena Sini, CIO – Humanitas Research Hospital
Lucia Savage, Chief Privacy Officer – Omada Health
