Among the nation’s leading HIPAA compliance and “Big Data” attorneys, Kristen Rosati was selected to lead a panel of healthcare data experts at the Arizona State University Health Futures Council’s Biannual Meeting on May 1.

As the panel moderator, Kristen guided the conversation between representatives from the ASU College of Health Solutions, the University of California at San Francisco School of Medicine, and the Black Women’s Health Imperative. The group explored various aspects of health disparities –  differences in access to health care, quality of health care and health outcomes for different populations.  The group discussed strategies to expand data-driven research on the causes of health disparities and solutions for those disparities. The panel also emphasized the need to avoid entrenchment of disparities in “Big Data” research and development of new technologies, such as artificial intelligence.

Kristen joins fellow healthcare industry leaders – including representatives from prestigious health systems, health insurance companies, educational organizations, research institutes, and digital health companies – as a member of ASU’s Health Futures Council. The Council provides strategic input into ASU’s health-related activities, encouraging further research, collaboration, and partnerships.

Kristen has deep expertise in data sharing for research and clinical integration initiatives, health information exchange, data breaches, and biobanking and genomic privacy. She is a sought-after national speaker on these issues and is active in national health care policy. Kristen is also a Past President of the American Health Lawyers Association (AHLA), the nation’s largest health care legal organization.
