The world's premier privacy and data protection conference focuses on international topics, policy and strategy. Recognized as a leading forum for discussion, the Summit features expert speakers and top regulators, and delivers unmatched education and networking opportunities.
As part of this year's Summit, DWT partner Adam Greene, along with Joe Ashkouti, Chief Privacy Officer Change Healthcare, will be presenting "Using Customer Health Data to Develop and Improve AI."
Artificial intelligence holds great potential to improve the health care system, and it is becoming an indispensable tool for many technology companies in the health care sector. Uses of AI include recommending treatment options, improving billing functionalities, automating medical record documentation, and far more. Technology customers need an ever-increasing amount of health data to develop and improve AI algorithms, but they need to navigate HIPAA, other federal and state privacy laws, and customer contracts to appropriately use customer data for AI purposes. This session will explore the pathways to do so, such as through de-identification, health care operations, research, and other legal permissions. The session will include case studies on HIPAA and AI development and audience voting on legal questions that remain divisive.
Takeaways from the session:
- How HIPAA permits the use and disclosure of health data to develop and improve AI
- Limitations that a HIPAA business associate agreement imposes on a business associate's use of health data for AI
- Categories of sensitive health conditions and treatments subject to additional restrictions
