Kristen Rosati recently shared her expertise on “Big Data” arrangements with Academic Medical Centers (AMCs) at the National Association of College and University Attorneys (NACUA) Annual Conference in Columbus, Ohio.

In the panel, “The Evolving Academic Medical Center: Addressing Regulatory, Strategic, and Financial Headwinds,” Kristen spoke about how the big data deals are driving revenue, supporting the development of artificial intelligence (AI) and other health care innovation, facilitating powerful research, creating rich data resources to improve health and health services and reduce the cost of health care, and bolstering public health activities.

Despite Big Data’s positive influence, Kristen noted potential risks — breaches in data privacy and security and regulatory compliance chief among them. In these arrangements, the absence of thorough and thoughtful evaluation of the regulatory issues and implementation of diligent data governance can trigger potential liability.

A sought-after national speaker, Kristen has been active in national health care policy and served as past President (2013-2014) and Fellow of the American Health Law Association (AHLA), the nation’s largest health care legal organization. She was recently recognized by Super Lawyers as one of the top 25 women attorneys in Arizona and is a founding member of the Arizona Leadership Council for Take the Lead Women.
