Health care privacy is a big deal. Deciding what to disclose to your health care provider is one thing; sharing that information with your employer or grandmother is another. In our age of big data, wearable technology, and transnational mega-mergers, health care privacy is just one breach away from being embarrassing publicity. Even sooner than the breach point, privacy is a defining issue for many LGBTQ people when determining whether to seek and receive health care, such as preventative care and substance abuse treatment, or downloading a health tracking application, or switching from a physical to an electronic pharmacy. This panel will discuss four major privacy laws that address health information (HIPAA; 42 CFR Part 2; GINA; CCPA) using real-world examples, interactive polling, and cybersecurity tips applicable to LGBTQ health care consumers and attorneys who counsel LGBTQ clients and community organizations.
