New OnDemand | The Privacy and Security Implications of Big Health Data Initiatives

The goal of these initiatives is a better understanding of clinical care outcomes and ways to reduce healthcare costs, as well as the exploration of new medical discoveries, but they also come with critical privacy and security caveats that must be carefully addressed.
