Round 2. How Will Patient Data Privacy Evolve in the Next Decade?

Whether inside brick and mortar care or in a virtual clinical trial, our thinking about patients and their data is evolving. What are new considerations around data privacy today and into the next decade? Where does HIPAA fall short and complicate rules for organizations to align with patient intent? Finally, how do we make the patient experience of consent for data use consistent and clear over time?
