Privacy: Preventing Harm or Innovation

September 7, 2015

On August 25, my fellow panelists and I were invited to flip our #MedX panel with #HCLDR. This is the blog post we wrote to set the stage for the chat. The resulting HCLDR transcript is a treasure trove of knowledge, opinion and thought leadership.

In health, do our assumptions and experience regarding privacy prevent harm or impede innovation? This is what we will address at Stanford Medicine X in September during our panel discussion with Susannah Fox, Pam Ressler, Wendy Sue Swanson, Jodi Sperber and Colleen Young. But first, we’re flipping the panel to jump start the conversation, collecting and sharing resources (such as this Flipboard collection), and most importantly gathering knowledge from our communities like #hcsmca and #hcldr.

In July, we asked #hcsmca-ers how they define privacy, in particular on social media and the information we choose to share. Using the term “privacy calculus,” we queried how people calculate the benefit vs. risk when sharing health information online. As anticipated, the #hcsmca community had a lot of wisdom to share. (See the #hcsmca chat summary.)
