          Privacy & Technology Project Bridges Gap in Health Information Privacy

          In the dynamic digital age, mobile health may transform health care and health promotion. Justifiable concerns over the sufficiency of HIPAA protections have led to the expansion of regulatory measures for electronic protected health information (PHI).

          Striking a delicate balance between protecting patient privacy and unleashing the power of innovation in mobile heatlh information technology is challenging and uncharted. The California attorney general called for open dialogue to discuss better integration of mobile innovation and consumer protection.

          Partnerships, such as the University of California Hastings College of the Law’s Privacy and Technology Project, are bridging the gap between lawmakers and technologists to provide more compatible solutions and informed industry standards. It remains to be seen whether the final rule can achieve its intended goals of protecting patients’ privacy and improving care or if the administrative and legal challenges will impede innovation, particularly for small companies.

          Read more from the Journal of the American Medical Association about how UC Hastings' Privacy & Technology project is advancing these efforts here.
