Last week, a number of Husch Blackwell attorneys participated in the firm’s sponsorship of the 2017 South by Southwest (SXSW) Conference and Festivals in Austin, Texas. A contingency of our Healthcare attorneys attended the sessions and staffed our booth at the SXSW Trade Show’s Health Pavilion. There were several sessions focused on emerging health technology which is increasingly pushing the limits of HIPAA.

Our blog post from the SXSW Conference details some of the new technologies being developed, what this means for patient data, a quick primer on the privacy and security components of HIPAA and the Federal Trade Commission’s involvement in the topic.
