November 16, 2018 / Mike Miliard

Specifically, the AMIA wants a more integrated approach to how policies aimed at both the "health sector" and "consumer sector" are defined. A patchwork of consumer and patient privacy policies already exists in healthcare, AMIA told the National Telecommunications and Information Administration this week.
