Summary
  • The Department of Health and Human Services announced new rules focused on interoperability and APIs, which will make it easier for patients to access their own health data and bring it into 3rd-party applications.
  • Critics of the new rules are highlighting the potential misuse of sensitive patient data by 3rd-party players, with a gap between HHS rules and HIPAA in the governance of downstream uses of patient data.
  • It is inevitable that we’ll see some form of privacy regulation that covers these gaps – either as an update to HIPAA and/or a broader piece of federal privacy regulation.
  • The potential for innovation powered by AI is immense and will take many forms – from an ecosystem of 3rd-party apps that can tap real health data to serve consumer needs, to informed virtual consults/telemedicine, to care coordination with better handoffs.
