Center for Democracy and Technology launches health privacy initiative
PC World/Washington Post, March 12, 2008
The Center for Democracy and Technology, a Washington, DC-based digital rights and privacy group, has taken over the Health Privacy Project. The merged organization will expand work on several lingering patient privacy issues, such as the role of patient consent for information use, enforcement for privacy lapses and the rights of patients to access their data. Privacy needs to be a higher priority as the U.S. government and other groups push for adoption of health IT, said CDT representatives.
