Top 5 Things to Know About Health Data Privacy Laws

Join us for a Conversation with Counsel – this time speaking with Aaron Parry on what you need to know about consumer health data privacy laws.

While you may be used to hearing about the more comprehensive state privacy laws throughout the country, there has also been a rise in privacy laws with narrower applicability in 2023. Three states – Washington, Nevada, and Connecticut – have introduced consumer health data privacy laws, which have some nuanced compliance obligations.

Listen in as Aaron dives into his top 5 list:

  • Applicability
  • Definition of “consumer” and “consumer health data”
  • Geofencing prohibitions
  • Employee access to data
  • Obtaining consent

Failure to comply with these obligations can result in stiff penalties for your business. It’s a good idea to work with experienced counsel to determine if these laws are applicable to you and adapt your compliance programs accordingly. If you have more questions or would like to speak to an M&S attorney, contact us.
