After STAT Health News published an investigation into health care organizations’ use of online tracking technologies, such as Meta Pixel, the Office for Civil Rights and the Federal Trade Commission launched their own investigations. The FTC has issued substantial fines, and now class actions are being filed across the U.S.
The Arizona Society of Healthcare Attorneys hosted Kristen Rosati and Nate Kunz to provide insights on the regulatory and legal issues arising from health care organizations’ use of online tracking technologies. They explained online tracking compliance requirements for HIPAA, Federal Trade Commission regulations, and state data privacy laws. They also discussed best practices for protecting attorney-client privilege and the attorney work product while conducting internal investigations.
Kristen, a past President and Fellow of the American Health Law Association, is a nationally sought-after expert and speaker on “big data” and HIPAA compliance. She has advised numerous clients through internal investigations related to online tracking. Nate is a commercial litigator with experience in complex litigation, including data breach litigation.
