Alston & Bird attorneys Peter Swire will present during the breakout sessions at this conference hosted by the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP).
On October 1, 1:15pm-2:15pm, Peter Swire will be a featured speaker during the session "HIPAA Then and Now and the Valuable Insights of Monday Morning Quarterbacks". Wearable technology, computerized device implants, health and fitness apps, affordable care organizations, health information exchanges, personal health records, Big Data analytics, genetic sequencing, employee wellness, ransomware and other security developments. These are some of the novel developments in health care that present critical challenges for privacy professionals. Did the HIPAA privacy rules, created in the (relatively speaking) Stone Age, set up the right balance of privacy protection versus clinical care, research, innovation, affordability and other current day drivers? Do the rules make sense given new developments in technology, informatics, ubiquitous connectivity and collaborative business relationships? What approaches might work better? Our panelists have lived HIPAA both then and now — the key White House architect of the Privacy Rule, a computer science expert on the intersection of health privacy and technology and CPOs of a top tier pharmaceutical company and academic medical center. Together and with the audience, the panel will explore these questions with the goal of positing a HIPAA 2.0 perspective and approach.
