As technology continues to iterate rapidly, I believe that data use and privacy are on the cutting edge of health care and medical innovation. Privacy laws and regulations continue to evolve and impact medical technology and health care, but at the same time there are incredible opportunities for those same companies to change the world as we know it. Companies that understand how to effectively engage with the ever-changing privacy landscape will be at a significant advantage.
