Kristen Rosati on Planning Committee for National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine Workshop on Data Sharing

Kristen Rosati shared her expertise on data privacy and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in a presentation at the Health Care Compliance Association’s (HCCA) Regional Compliance Conference in Nashville, TN.

Kristen explained how the GDPR will impact health care organizations in the US. The GDPR is a law implemented in the European Union which is reshaping how organizations in health care and other industries handle personal data, and which has extra-territorial impact on some health care organizations in the US. The GDPR is getting widespread attention after an EU data protection authority imposed a fine of over $50 million on Google for its data practices.
