Earlier this year, both Washington and Nevada enacted consumer health data laws, and Connecticut amended its privacy law to add additional protections for consumer health data.  At the same time, the Federal Trade Commission increasingly has used existing authorities – including Section 5 of the FTC Act and the Health Breach Notification Rule – to bring enforcement actions against digital health companies in relation to online advertising and data security practices.  This section will survey recent changes to the privacy frameworks for consumer health data and discuss compliance strategies that address new requirements, but also preserve opportunities for innovation and advancing digital health tools for consumers.
