The development of new technologies for use in the health care arena is opening up revolutionary avenues for both treatment and research. Technological and scientific innovations for collecting, storing, analyzing and sharing personal health data, including as “Big Data,” promise to advance cures for a wide variety of conditions.  These innovations raise challenges for the protection of personal health information privacy and security.  This session will explore these challenges and potential means for addressing them, including a discussion of governmental and self-regulatory initiatives.
