The Intersection of Public Health and Health Care: Health Care Data and the Law in the 21st Century, Part III: Sharing Data: Modern Legal Issues and Trends - On Demand Recording

Recorded On: 08/09/2017

Time: 90 minutes
Format: On Demand Recording

Electronic health records have created a cornucopia of health data that can be used for patient care, quality improvement, and disease surveillance. The ability to share health data is important to open the doors for health innovation, individualize patient care, and advances in national and global public health. However, sharing this data comes with several technical and legal issues. This webinar is designed to describe modern health data exchange and the legal implications of sharing data during disease outbreaks and public health emergencies. Speakers also plan to address privacy concerns and issues related to complex data sharing agreements.

Note: No CLE offered for this course.

This webinar is presented in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
