Her work on privacy grew from her experiences in the most privacy-sensitive specialty in Medicine, Psychiatry and Freudian Psychoanalysis. She saw the need for a national organization to defend individuals’ human and civil rights to health privacy. PPR promotes realistic, trustworthy technology solutions that enable you to reap the benefits of Big Data and research, while keeping your medical data private.
Patient Privacy Rights’ mission is restoring patient control over personal health information. To accomplish our mission, we educate and work collaboratively with patients and organizations to restore the ethical right to health information privacy, the foundation of the patient-physician relationship, in law, policy, and technology.
