Title: Health Data, A Value Proposition: Legal Risks with Innovative Data Sharing Projects

Presenter: Iliana L. Peters, Shareholder at Polsinelli PC
Time: 1.07 hours

Description: These days, data is more valuable than oil. And health data is the most valuable of all data! Companies of all types should consider the legal risk with data valuation, data ownership, and data sharing agreements. Data sharing projects take many forms and address many important issues, including improvements in patient safety, fraud and abuse, population health, research, and costs to the healthcare system.

That said, the contractual, state, federal, and international regulatory requirements applicable to such data sharing projects are significant. As such, healthcare entities may be particularly vulnerable to legal risk related to data sharing projects involving health data. Specifically, healthcare entities should consider contractual obligation, HIPAA, state privacy laws, and other requirements, as well as discuss risk assessment, data sharing agreements, key provisions, and business associate relationships. The presentation offers best practices for these important issues and projects.


•  Understand the scope and breadth of data sharing projects in development in the healthcare sector.
•  Understand contractual, state, federal, and international legal obligations for data privacy and security for such projects.
•  Discuss issues related to data ownership that may also be part of such projects.
