Your health data is being captured, sold, and analyzed everyday- and our health data privacy laws are not keeping pace. In fact, the average American will generate 2,750 times more health data not protected by our current privacy laws than data protected by them.

The Privacy Prescription: Why Health Data Privacy Is in Critical Condition and How to Fix It establishes the middle ground missing in debates about healthcare data privacy and outlines a sensible path forward, with suggestions gleaned from some of the most qualified people across the healthcare spectrum.

In these pages you'll discover:

The pros and cons of one of the least understood laws today: HIPAA How a $5 billion fine wasn't enough to teach Facebook a lesson about its health groups Why privacy nutrition labels might be one of the secrets to raising privacy standards The consequences of a devious defecator and at-home DNA test kits Tools to help you protect your data We have the ability as a society to keep individuals' data safe without stifling research or important medical advancements. But it will take effort. As healthcare increasingly relies on Big Data and technology exerts a greater influence on medical practice, The Privacy Prescription is more vital than ever.
