On January 26, 2010, the IPOL Events Series at the University of Michigan’s School of Information will host a health privacy event featuring Deven McGraw, Director of the Health Privacy Project at CDT. Ms. McGraw will present on the privacy implications of the health IT provisions contained in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). Ms. McGraw argues: “Although the provisions were aimed at strengthening protections for health data in the digital age, they raise substantial implementation challenges and fall short of establishing the comprehensive privacy and security framework needed to build public trust in emerging e-health systems.”
Note: As of the time of this posting, I do not see the time/location details on the university’s calendar.
