In this episode of The Privacy Advisor Podcast, Kirk Nahra of Wiley Rein talks about the challenges of working in the healthcare space these days, particularly, the challenges healthcare entities have in managing the multitude of third-party vendors and the “ongoing element of risk” involved in trying to ensure not only your organization is in compliance with regulations, but vendors are too. He also discusses the explosion of available data not covered under current healthcare laws, like the data from your wearable devices, and whether that data is regulated by any body of law at all. “We’ve got this enormous gap right now,” and the new administration isn’t particularly interested in figuring that out, Nahra says, but he’s hopeful U.S. state Attorneys General are going to pick up the slack.Want to keep up with new episodes?
