Patient privacy and data governance in the era of COVID-19

Data accountability strategies for balancing privacy and public health 

In 2020, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) took a major step toward realigning the patient data access environment by releasing a landmark set of final rules about information blocking and public data sharing accountability.

While these rules were designed in a pre-pandemic world, they may have equally important implications for the new demands of public health in the era of COVID-19, including disease reporting and social contact tracing.

For many, enterprise master person indexes (EMPIs) will be critical for balancing the need for a private and secure digital environment with the unprecedented challenges of COVID-19.

In this whitepaper, Patient privacy and data governance in the era of COVID-19, you’ll learn:

  • How to navigate uncharted data management territory safely and proactively
  • How to take ownership of data governance to meet modern privacy needs
  • What it takes to make informed decisions around patient identity management
