Understanding Washington’s My Health My Data (MHMD) Act: Applicability, Scope and Requirements

Cooley’s Andrew Epstein and Brooke Fritz discussed Washington’s My Health My Data (MHMD) Act. The MHMD Act is arguably one of the most stringent privacy laws in the US, and it further complicates the already byzantine US patchwork approach to privacy. While the MHMD Act purports to focus on healthcare-related data and close the “gap” that exists for entities not governed by the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), it applies on a much wider basis to more data, as well as to organizations whose core business may have nothing to do with healthcare.

This presentation covered the scope and applicability of the MHMD Act, specific requirements and enforcement issues, and other frequently asked questions.
