Dissonance Series: Protecting Patient Privacy in Big Data

Tue, 11/19/2019 - 6:00pm

Vandenberg Room, Michigan League 

Join us next Tuesday, November 19, at 6 p.m., for an exciting Dissonance event: Protecting Patient Privacy in Big Data. This panel discussion will take place in the Vandenberg Room, on the second floor of the Michigan League on the UM-Ann Arbor campus. There is no charge for this event and no need to register.

Event Overview

Electronic health records, connected medical devices, health tracking applications, and more have led to a tidal wave of medical data. How this data is being used to transform patient care, improve care quality and decrease healthcare costs, however, is not always evident. Michigan Medicine physicians and legal scholars will explore how medical care will change as digital health platforms evolve, the legal ramifications we might have to navigate, and the privacy and ethical issues that are unfolding today.
