HIPAA sets a floor rather than a ceiling for how patient privacy works state by state. Human factors also add complexity to policy under the law in areas such as clinical trials and substance abuse treatment. Today's guest David Finney is joined by Deanne Kasim and Arien Malec to explore how efficient exchange of personal data, proven in existing technology and innovative networks, offers the promise of information sharing at reduced cost.

David Finney is co-founder and partner of Leap Orbit. Deanne Kasim is executive director of health policy at Change Healthcare. Arien Malec is senior vice president of product development at Change Healthcare.

Here's what they discussed.

  • Forms of data use authorized by HIPAA
  • HIPAA’s patchwork of privacy protections
  • Patient authorization’s role in HIPAA
  • Information that requires patient authorization
  • HIPAA’s de-identified data standard
  • Technology for documenting patient privacy directives
  • A complicating factor in authorization
  • State approaches to data collection
  • Policy recommendations for data exchange
  • A preemptive national health privacy law
