Evolving Privacy Law in California and the Ramifications for Healthcare Organizations - On Demand

This presentation is a recording of a webinar given on 7/16/2020 by Clearwater's Managing Principal Consultant, Wes Morris.


By now, healthcare organizations doing business in California have become familiar with, and created compliance programs to manage, the requirements of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). Now comes a potential new law, the California Privacy Rights Act, which has achieved enough signatures to be presented on the November ballot.

The California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA) is being presented as a “red-line” to the CCPA, which will, if approved by the voters, go into effect in January 2023, with a one-year look-back to January 2022. The ramifications of this new potential law on the healthcare industry are significant, impacting not only those organizations based in California but also those doing business in California, regardless of their physical location. Commercial health plans and healthcare start-ups may be especially affected.

During this webinar, we will explore:

  • Who is protected by the potential law, as applied to healthcare
  • What data is protected
  • What data is carved out from protection
  • The proposed enforcement agency that will be created
  • How what is happening in California reflects the broader privacy rights movement across the United States
