Health Data Protection Challenges: Where are we Now?

Webinar Overview:

Since the implementation of GDPR by the European Union May 25, 2018, health care, pharma, and life science organizations impacted by the regulation have strived to apply a robust data privacy and protection framework to meet those compliance objectives associated with Special Categories of personal data: Health Data. Establishing, governing and monitoring GDPR compliance in health care, pharma, and life science companies is more challenging with a diverse set of affiliates, partners, and other stakeholders across various business functions.

Focus Areas:

  • Introduction to GDPR as it applies to Health Data Protection
  • What rights do individuals have relating to their personal information?
  • What security requirements apply to personal health data?
  • How personal health data should be protected
  • Operationalizing an internal privacy program for health data
  • What other health care laws apply to companies in the life sciences vertical, and how can we leverage existing compliance programs to reduce the lift of GDPR compliance?
    • Intersection of GDPR with other EU regulations such as Clinical Trials Directive
    • Intersection of GDPR with HIPAA
  • New Data Protection and Patient Privacy regulations
    • California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)
    • The potential for a US Federal Privacy Law
  • Remember that the GDPR requires ongoing compliance—not a one-time compliance project
