Dr. Deborah Peel, PPR Founder & Chair, will join her co-authors to talk about pressing privacy issues raised in HIMSS’s just released book, Information Privacy in the Evolving Healthcare Environment. As a co-author, Dr. Peel’s contributing chapter discusses patients’ rights to privacy and consent and outlines the auditable criteria of PPR’s Trust Framework, which includes 15 clear principles to ensure meaningful consent within all electronic systems.
Restoring patient control over PHI will be a key topic discussed, with additional focus on the technologies and laws needed to address the gaps and flaws in the Omnibus Privacy Rule.

An advocate for patients’ rights to health privacy since 2004, when she formed PPR, Dr. Peel has led the charge for more stringent data privacy and security protections, as well as tough new enforcement and penalties for violations that were included in the January 2013 release of the Omnibus Privacy Rule.
