The ONC will be hosting a free, day-long public roundtable to address the topic of Personal Health Records (PHRs) on December 3, 2010. The roundtable is designed to inform ONC’s Congressionally-mandated report on privacy and security requirements for non-covered entities, with a focus on personal health records and related service providers (Section 13424 of the HITECH Act). In conjunction with the conference, the ONC is seeking comments that particularly address: (i) privacy and security and emerging technologies; (ii) consumer expectations about collection and use of health information; (iii) privacy and security requirements for non-covered entities (such as PHR, mobile technology and social networking); and (iv) any other comments on PHRs and non-covered entities. The public comment period will close on December 10.
