International Data Privacy Laws: Healthcare Information and Technology in the Age of GDPR
HIMSS20 Global Health Conference & Exhibition
Orlando, FL 32819
Safeguarding an individual’s protected health information has taken on global importance as both technology and laws governing personal data and digital proliferate. 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 harmonizing frameworks and geographic alignment between HIPAA and GDPR.
