Following the Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the Biden administration has outlined a framework for federal executive action designed to protect access to reproductive health care. On July 8, 2022, President Biden issued an Executive Order Protecting Access to Reproductive Health Care Services (the “Executive Order”) directing federal agencies, including the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) , the Department of Justice (DOJ), and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to take various actions to address “this health crisis.”1

HHS and the FTC subsequently issued guidance on what is required by pre-existing regulatory frameworks. As recognized in the Executive Order, the cancellation deer “has already had and will continue to have devastating implications for women’s health and public health more broadly.” Among these implications are the consequences for privacy, in particular the confidentiality of reproductive health information and other sensitive data, including protected health information (PHI), location information, search history and online or credit card purchases under pre-existing privacy frameworks.

Companies that process sensitive data should be aware of these evolving federal guidelines and agency policy framework and how it may impact their data processing activities generally. For instance:

  • Entities covered by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) should assess their disclosure practices in light of these latest HHS guidelines to ensure they are not unintentionally violating the privacy rule when attempting to Comply with new state laws that come into effect. that can restrict access to reproductive health care.

  • Companies that collect sensitive data (including location data) must ensure that they are transparent about their data collection and sharing practices in order to comply with FTC privacy requirements.

  • Companies that claim to process “anonymized” information must ensure that their anonymization standard complies with FTC guidelines or risk possible legal action. The risk may be particularly heightened if this “anonymized” information is used to target individuals based on their reproductive health status or health outcomes.

The executive order includes provisions to protect the privacy of patients and consumers, as well as their access to accurate reproductive health care information.2 In particular, the decree addresses the transfer and sale of sensitive health-related data, digital surveillance related to reproductive health care services, and protection against inaccurate information, fraudulent schemes or deceptive practices. These provisions and subsequent HHS and FTC actions are described below.

HHS: Patient Privacy and Health Data

The executive order directs HHS “to consider actions, including providing guidance under [HIPAA] . . . to strengthen the protection of sensitive information related to reproductive health services. Following President Biden’s executive order, HHS issued a press release and guidance (“HHS Guidance”) on its role in protecting patient privacy in light of the Dobbs decision. The first part of the HHS Guidance discussed how HIPAA and its regulations protect individuals’ PHI with respect to abortion and other sexual and reproductive health care. permitted or required by the HIPAA Privacy Rule.

The HHS Guidance focuses on three scenarios in which an individual’s PHI may be disclosed to third parties: (1) disclosures required by law; (2) disclosures for law enforcement purposes; and (3) disclosures to avoid a serious threat to health or safety. In the first scenario (disclosures required by law), HHS noted that the HIPAA Privacy Rule allows but does not require a covered entity to disclose an individual’s PSI when such disclosure is required by another law and the disclosure complies with the requirements of the other law. The agency clarified that authorization to disclose PHI “as required by law” is limited to “a warrant contained in law that requires an entity to use or disclose PHI and is enforceable in court.” and that “disclosures of PSR that…exceed what is required by this law are not considered permissible disclosures.” For example, if a state law prohibited a person from having an abortion after six weeks , but did not expressly require hospitals to report alleged violations of the law, a hospital (as a HIPAA-covered entity) would not be permitted to disclose an alleged violation of the abortion law of the state under the HIPAA Privacy Rule because the disclosure would not be “required by law”.

Similarly, the HHS Guidance notes that the Privacy Rule permits, but does not require Covered Entities, to disclose an individual’s PSI for law enforcement purposes “as due process and as otherwise required by law.” law” (such as subpoenas or other court orders). HHS notes that in the absence of a warrant enforceable in court, the confidentiality rule’s authorization to disclose PSI for law enforcement purposes does not permit disclosure to law enforcement when ‘a hospital or other health care provider staff member has chosen to report an individual’s abortion or other reproductive health care. For example, if a law enforcement officer visited a reproductive health clinic (as a covered entity) and requested records of abortions performed at the clinic, the clinic would not be permitted to disclose those abortions. records unless such request is accompanied by a court order.

Finally, the HHS guidelines address situations where the confidentiality rule permits but (again) does not require a Covered Entity to disclose PSI in situations where the Covered Entity (in good faith) believes that the use or the disclosure is necessary to prevent or mitigate a serious and imminent threat to the health or safety of any person or the public, and the disclosure is made to a person or persons who are reasonably capable of preventing or mitigating the threatens. HHS notes that it would be inconsistent with professional standards of ethical conduct to release such information to law enforcement or others regarding an individual’s interest, intent, or prior experience in reproductive health care. For example, a health care provider who learns that his patient intended to travel to another state for an abortion would not be permitted to disclose that fact to law enforcement, as disclosure is not considered as a “serious and imminent threat to the health or safety of any person or the public.” »

FTC: Protecting Consumer Privacy and Preventing Deceptive or Fraudulent Practices

The executive order encourages the FTC to “consider actions…to protect the privacy of consumers when seeking information about reproductive health services and the provision of those services” and “to combat deceptive or fraudulent practices.” related to reproductive health services”. Subsequently, the FTC reiterated its commitment to fully enforce the law against the unlawful use and sharing of highly sensitive data in a post on its corporate blog. The post first discusses information market dynamics and the role of data aggregators and data brokers, noting that connected devices collect sensitive data, including precise location and health information, and that consumers are often unaware of what happens to this information once it has been collected. As an example of potential misuse of sensitive information related to reproductive health, the post referenced the FTC’s recent settlement with Flo Health. After outlining some potential harms caused by misuses of mobile location and health information, the FTC reiterated its commitment to “vigorously enforce the law” if they discover “illegal conduct that exploits location, health or other sensitive data of Americans”.

For businesses considering compliance, the FTC said past enforcement actions should serve as a roadmap and highlighted a few key points:

  • Sensitive data is protected by federal and state laws, many of which are enforced by the Commission. In addition to Section 5 of the FTC Act, which prohibits unfair and deceptive marketing practices, the FTC enforces the Safeguard Rule, Health Injury Notification Rule, and Online Privacy Shield Rule. children.

  • Claims that data is “anonymous” or “has been anonymized” are often misleading and, if untrue, may constitute a deceptive marketing practice that violates FTC law. Significant research has shown that “anonymized data” can often be re-identified. False claims of anonymization will trigger scrutiny from the FTC.

  • Citing recent enforcement actions against OpenX, Kurbo/Weight Watchers, and CafePress, the FTC reiterated that the misuse of consumer data is an area of ​​concern for the FTC.

Companies that collect sensitive data, including location and health data, should take extra care in claiming that the data is “anonymous” or has been “anonymized” and should look to past FTC actions to get additional compliance guidance. This shows that the FTC cannot simply take companies at their word on anonymization and that they must be especially careful when applying this principle to sensitive data or location information.

Footnotes

The attached press release (“Fact Sheet”) notes that “President Biden has made it clear that the only way to guarantee a woman’s right to choose is for Congress to restore Roe’s protections by as federal law. Until then, it has pledged to do everything in its power to uphold reproductive rights and protect access to safe and legal abortion.”

2. In addition, the decree includes provisions outside the scope of this blog post, including those related to protecting access to reproductive health care services, physical security of patients, providers and third parties and the safety of clinics, pharmacies, and other entities assisting in the provision of reproductive health services through cooperation between the DOJ and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and the creation of an interagency working group on access to reproductive health care led by HHS and the White House Gender Policy Council to coordinate the Administration’s efforts.

On July 27, 2022, Behavioral Health Group (“BHG”) filed a formal notice of data breach after a “security incident” affecting the company’s computer system allowed an unauthorized party to access sensitive information belonging to certain patients. According to the BHG, the breach compromised the following types of data: full names, social security numbers, driver’s license numbers, state identification numbers, financial account information, payment card information, numbers passport, biometric data and health insurance information. The breach also exposed patients’ medical information, including medical diagnoses and treatments, medication information, dates of service, and medical record numbers. After confirming the breach and identifying all affected parties, Behavioral Health Group began sending data breach letters to all affected parties.

If you have received a data breach notification, it is essential that you understand what is at risk and what you can do about it. To learn more about how to protect yourself from fraud or identity theft and what legal options are available to you following the Behavioral Health Group data breach, please see our recent article on the topic. here.

What we know about the Behavioral Health Group data breach

Information about the Behavioral Health Group data breach comes from the company’s official filing with various state government entities as well as a notice posted on BHG’s website. Obviously, on an undisclosed date, BHG learned that an unauthorized party may have gained access to the company’s computer system. In response, BHG secured its network and began working with external cybersecurity professionals to investigate the incident.

As a result of this investigation, BHG was able to confirm that an unauthorized party deleted certain files and folders from the company’s computer network on December 5, 2021.

After discovering that sensitive consumer data was accessible to an unauthorized party, Behavioral Health Group began reviewing the affected files to determine what information had been compromised and which patients had been affected. Although the hacked information varies depending on the individual, it can include your full name, social security number, driver’s license or state ID number, financial account information, your payment card, passport, biometric data, health insurance information and medical information, including a medical diagnosis. and treatment, medication information, dates of service, and medical record number.

On July 27, 2022, Behavioral Health Group sent data breach letters to everyone whose information was compromised as a result of the recent data security incident.

More information about the Behavioral Health Group

Founded in 2006, Behavioral Health Group is a system of outpatient opioid treatment and recovery centers based in Dallas, Texas. BHG operates 117 locations in twenty-four states and is focused on providing drug treatment for people with opioid use disorder. Behavioral Health Group employs more than 1,900 people and generates approximately $270 million in annual revenue.

Beware of data breaches affecting your protected health information

The Behavioral Health Group data breach resulted in a wide range of patient data ending up in the hands of hackers. In the notice posted on the company’s website, BHG says some of the information disclosed was protected health information. But what is protected health information and why is it so important to keep this information private?

Protected health information is a type of data relating to a patient’s past, present or future health condition. Protected health information also includes information about how a patient pays for health care, such as insurance information or Medicare/Medicaid information. However, not all health data falls into the category of protected health information because, to be considered “protected” health information, the data must contain at least one identifier. An identifier is additional data that anyone can use to identify the patient. For example, common identifiers include patient names, social security numbers, and addresses.

While the consequences of any data breach can have an extremely disruptive impact on your life, the risks that follow as a result of a health data breach are even more serious. For example, healthcare identity theft is generally more difficult to correct than purely financial fraud and often comes at a higher cost to the victim in terms of time and money. One reason for this is that the hackers who carry out these attacks often sell the protected health information they obtain to a third party, who then seeks medical treatment on behalf of the victim.

If you are a victim of healthcare identity theft, the provider who rendered the care will look to you to cover the bill (because, in their minds, you were the patient). However, the most serious threat is that the person who bought your information from a hacker and obtained medical care on your behalf provides doctors with their own information that ends up in your medical records. For example, a fraudulent patient may give the doctor their own list of medications, allergies, or past medical procedures. This information can end up being confused with your own medical information and can pose a real problem the next time you go to the doctor or the hospital.

Anyone who has been the victim of a data breach involving protected health information should take the situation seriously and ensure that they are doing everything possible to mitigate the risk of identity theft in healthcare. Talking to a data breach attorney is a good first step for anyone looking to learn more about what to do in the wake of a healthcare data breach and what their options are for keeping the business going. who disclosed their information financially responsible.

The National Integrated Heat Health Information System (NIHHIS) launched the HEAT.gov website today, providing resources and information for Americans looking to beat the heat. NIHHIS’ mission is to identify extreme heat service needs, develop science-based solutions, and leverage partnerships to empower communities for improved communications, capacity building, and decision-making. With a vision to keep the nation free of heat-related illnesses and deaths, HEAT.gov’s effort is a collaboration of many federal partners including CDC, EPA, FEMA, NPS, DHHS , OSHA, NOAA, etc.

The HEAT.gov website, which serves as the information hub for this collaborative enterprise, includes tools such as temperature and climate outlooks, information and resources that cover groups at risk from extreme heat, and press articles and related press releases from partner agencies. The website says they’re there as the nation’s “first source of heat and health information to help reduce the health, economic, and infrastructural impacts of extreme heat.”

The new HEAT.gov website launched today, July 26, 2022. Image: HEAT.gov
The new HEAT.gov website launched today, July 26, 2022. Image: HEAT.gov

NOAA Administrator Rick Spinrad, Ph.D., discussed NOAA’s role in the development of the new website in a press release shared by the agency today. “Reducing the risk of extreme heat in our nation requires a whole-of-government effort, which is why NOAA led a grand federal coalition to create, launch, and manage Heat.gov. This website will improve public health and help us build a climate-ready nation.

“Currently, few healthcare systems have heat action plans, and heat exposure is rarely integrated into real-time clinical decision-making for patients,” said Cecilia Sorensen, MD, associate professor and director of the Global Consortium on Climate and Health Education at Columbia. University. “…There is an urgent need to improve health system preparedness to deal with the growing burden of heat-related illnesses. These new tools will give health systems easy access to the information they need to promote climate preparedness and heat resilience, improving patient and community health outcomes while reducing environmental impacts. system-wide and improving the efficiency of health systems.

Heat.gov was created in conjunction with Esri, a geographic information system company. The website is hosted on Esri’s cloud-based geospatial platform, which allows easy access to a range of features, such as localized heat information, links to heating tools across from the federal government and an interactive map of urban heat island mapping from NOAA and NIHHIS. campaigns. The site supports access to open data, allowing communities and planners to integrate federal heat information into their own decision-making.

[co-author: Amy Gopinathan]

Following the Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the Biden administration has outlined a framework for federal executive action designed to protect access to reproductive health care. On July 8, 2022, President Biden issued an Executive Order Protecting Access to Reproductive Health Care Services (the “Executive Order”) directing federal agencies, including the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) , the Department of Justice (DOJ), and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to take various actions to address “this health crisis.”1

HHS and the FTC subsequently issued guidance on what is required by pre-existing regulatory frameworks. As recognized in the Executive Order, the cancellation deer “Has already had and will continue to have devastating consequences for women’s health and public health in general. Among these implications are the consequences for privacy, in particular the confidentiality of reproductive health information and other sensitive data, including protected health information (PHI), location information, search history and online or credit card purchases under pre-existing privacy frameworks.

Companies that process sensitive data should be aware of these evolving federal guidelines and agency policy framework and how it may impact their data processing activities generally. For instance:

  • Entities covered by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) should assess their disclosure practices in light of these latest HHS guidelines to ensure they are not unintentionally violating the privacy rule when attempting to Comply with new state laws that come into effect. that can restrict access to reproductive health care.
  • Companies that collect sensitive data (including location data) must ensure that they are transparent about their data collection and sharing practices in order to comply with FTC privacy requirements.
  • Companies that claim to process “anonymized” information must ensure that their anonymization standard complies with FTC guidelines or risk possible legal action. The risk may be particularly heightened if this “anonymized” information is used to target individuals based on their reproductive health status or health outcomes.

The executive order includes provisions to protect the privacy of patients and consumers, as well as their access to accurate reproductive health care information.2 In particular, the decree addresses the transfer and sale of sensitive health-related data, digital surveillance related to reproductive health care services, and protection against inaccurate information, fraudulent schemes or deceptive practices. These provisions and subsequent HHS and FTC actions are described below.

HHS: Patient Privacy and Health Data

The executive order directs HHS to “consider actions, including providing guidance under [HIPAA] . . . strengthen the protection of sensitive information related to reproductive health services. Following President Biden’s Executive Order, HHS issued a press release and guidance (“HHS Guidelines”) on its role in protecting patient privacy in light of the Dobbs decision. The first part of the HHS Guidance addressed how HIPAA and its regulations protect individuals’ PHI with respect to abortion and other sexual and reproductive health care. The HHS guidelines make it clear that HIPAA-covered entities may use or disclose PHI, without an individual’s signed permission, only as expressly permitted or required by the HIPAA Privacy Rule.

The HHS Guidance focuses on three scenarios in which an individual’s PHI may be disclosed to third parties: (1) disclosures required by law; (2) disclosures for law enforcement purposes; and (3) disclosures to avoid a serious threat to health or safety. In the first scenario (disclosures required by law), HHS noted that the HIPAA Privacy Rule allows but does not require a covered entity to disclose an individual’s PSI when such disclosure is required by another law and the disclosure complies with the requirements of the other law. The agency clarified that authorization to disclose PHI “as required by law” is limited to “a warrant contained in law that requires an entity to use or disclose PHI and is enforceable in court.” and that “disclosures of PHI that…exceed what is required by this law are not considered permissible disclosures. For example, if a state law prohibited a person from having an abortion after six weeks, but n expressly required hospitals to report alleged violations of the law, a hospital (as a HIPAA-covered entity) would not be permitted to disclose an alleged violation of state abortion law. under the HIPAA Privacy Rule because the disclosure would not be “required by law”.

Similarly, HHS Guidance notes that the Privacy Rule permits, but does not require Covered Entities, to disclose PHI about an individual for law enforcement purposes “according to process and otherwise required by law.” (such as subpoenas or other court orders). HHS notes that in the absence of a warrant enforceable in court, the confidentiality rule’s authorization to disclose PSI for law enforcement purposes does not permit disclosure to law enforcement when ‘a hospital or other health care provider staff member has chosen to report an individual’s abortion or other reproductive health care. For example, if a law enforcement officer visited a reproductive health clinic (as a covered entity) and requested records of abortions performed at the clinic, the clinic would not be permitted to disclose those abortions. records unless such request is accompanied by a court order.

Finally, the HHS guidelines address situations where the confidentiality rule permits but (again) does not require a Covered Entity to disclose PSI in situations where the Covered Entity (in good faith) believes that the use or the disclosure is necessary to prevent or mitigate a serious and imminent threat to the health or safety of any person or the public, and the disclosure is made to a person or persons who are reasonably capable of preventing or mitigating the threatens. HHS notes that it would be inconsistent with professional standards of ethical conduct to release such information to law enforcement or others regarding an individual’s interest, intent, or prior experience in reproductive health care. For example, a health care provider who learned that his patient was planning to travel to another state for an abortion would not be permitted to disclose that fact to law enforcement, as disclosure is not considered a “serious and imminent threat to the health or safety of any person or the public”.

FTC: Protecting Consumer Privacy and Preventing Deceptive or Fraudulent Practices

The executive order encourages the FTC to “consider actions . . . to protect the privacy of consumers when seeking information about and providing reproductive health services” and “to combat deceptive or fraudulent practices related to reproductive health services”. Subsequently, the FTC reiterated its commitment to fully enforce the law against the unlawful use and sharing of highly sensitive data in a post on its corporate blog. The post first discusses information market dynamics and the role of data aggregators and data brokers, noting that connected devices collect sensitive data, including precise location and health information, and that consumers are often unaware of what happens to this information once it has been collected. As an example of potential misuse of sensitive information related to reproductive health, the post referenced the FTC’s recent settlement with Flo Health. After outlining some potential harms caused by misuses of mobile location and health information, the FTC reiterated its commitment to “vigorously enforce the law” if they discover “illegal conduct that exploits location, health or other sensitive data of Americans”.

For businesses considering compliance, the FTC said past enforcement actions should serve as a roadmap and highlighted a few key points:

  • Sensitive data is protected by federal and state laws, many of which are enforced by the Commission. In addition to Section 5 of the FTC Act, which prohibits unfair and deceptive marketing practices, the FTC enforces the Safeguard Rule, Health Injury Notification Rule, and Online Privacy Shield Rule. children.
  • Claims that data is “anonymous” or “has been anonymized” are often misleading and, if untrue, may constitute a deceptive marketing practice that violates FTC law. Significant research has shown that “anonymized data” can often be re-identified. False claims of anonymization will trigger scrutiny from the FTC.
  • Citing recent enforcement actions against OpenX, Kurbo/Weight Watchers, and CafePress, the FTC reiterated that the misuse of consumer data is an area of ​​concern for the FTC.

Companies that collect sensitive data, including location and health data, should take extra care in claiming that the data is “anonymous” or has been “anonymized” and should look to past FTC actions to get additional compliance guidance. This shows that the FTC cannot simply take companies at their word on anonymization and that they must be especially careful when applying this principle to sensitive data or location information.


1 The accompanying press release (“Fact Sheet”) notes that “President Biden has made it clear that the only way to guarantee a woman’s right to choose is for Congress to reinstate Roe’s protections as law. Until then, he has pledged to do everything in his power to defend reproductive rights and protect access to safe and legal abortion.

2 Additionally, the executive order includes provisions outside the scope of this blog post, including those related to protecting access to reproductive health care services, physical safety of patients, providers and third parties and the safety of clinics, pharmacies and other entities. assistance in the provision of reproductive health services through cooperation between the DOJ and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and the creation of an interagency task force on access to reproductive health care led by the HHS and the White House Gender Policy Council to coordinate administration efforts.
