PRIVACY & SECURITY FORUM: A HIMSS EVENT
Boston, MA - December 5 - 7, 2016
The secondary use of personal health data can transform healthcare quality and medical innovation, but is only possible with consent or the data being fully de-identified. The application of new risk-based privacy techniques now make de-identification possible at a global scale. While privacy is the responsibility of all healthcare organizations, life-science companies and data leaders (real-world evidence) are driving and benefiting from the implementation of new global privacy standards in the health data sharing space. Leading companies are building dedicated data platforms in specific disease areas that extend across multiple countries and encompass sophisticated data collections and technology-enabled analytics. This talk explores the topic of maintaining privacy when leveraging data.
