How to Prepare for New State Health Privacy Laws

New state privacy laws regulating health data impose significant obligations and heightened risks. In addition to existing laws in California, Colorado and other states, Washington State’s My Health My Data Act and Nevada’s Consumer Health Data Privacy Law take effect in March 2024 and will require new or updated privacy notices, enhanced consent and many other compliance steps. Increasing regulator scrutiny of these issues and a new private cause of action in Washington make these laws top compliance priorities.

These laws impact entities ranging from healthcare providers and plans handling non-HIPAA health information online to pharmaceutical, fitness, wellness, identity verification and consumer goods companies. Join our health information privacy lawyers Elliot Golding and Sam Siegfried on March 12 to understand how these laws apply to your company and what you need to do now to prepare.
