Privacy Please!

Patient privacy continues to be a huge concern worldwide, especially in the healthcare field, and especially online. The states of Washington, Nevada, and Connecticut have passed strict patient privacy laws recently, that go into effect in June for small businesses. Patients cannot passively receive ads and notifications from third parties, without the express permission of the patient.

These new laws also address the collection, sharing, and selling of consumer health data. Due to these new laws, all patients on the LA Kelley Communications mailing list from these states have been removed. Review Washington State’s privacy bill as an example here.
