This CLE course will guide healthcare counsel in leveraging big data to improve the quality of patient care and reduce costs. The panel will offer best practices to minimize risks and overcome legal and regulatory hurdles when collecting and using patient data.


Big data has the possibility to provide incredibly valuable insights that can be leveraged to improve healthcare, enabling new diagnostic, therapeutic, care management, prevention methods, and products for inpatient care. Healthcare providers, covered entities, business associates, and others can unleash the power of big data with new analytics tools to control or cut healthcare costs and improve patient outcomes.

While the benefits can be significant, there are risks and compliance complexities associated with the use of big data in healthcare. The chief challenge in the U.S. may be complying with HIPAA and state privacy requirements and commitments to data subjects. Stark, Anti-Kickback, antitrust, and security issues may need to be addressed. In addition, there may be unique intellectual property and other issues to consider when new products and services are developed using artificial intelligence to analyze big data.

Listen as our authoritative panel of healthcare attorneys discusses the use of big data in healthcare and examines the legal and regulatory issues users of big data must address. The panel will offer best practices for overcoming the legal and regulatory hurdles, including HIPAA compliance, Stark and AKS compliance, and security issues.
