Misunderstandings among healthcare providers and public health authorities over sharing data threaten the nation's ability to respond to public health emergencies. The response after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita revealed that many providers and others still do not understand or fear sharing patient data.

The confusion complicates the response to a wide range of public health threats, including the threatened flu pandemic.

  • Privacy principles that apply in disaster response and emergencies;
  • Policies to govern data sharing to prevent or stem public health emergencies;
  • HIPAA effects on sharing of patient data in emergency preparation and response;
  • How state laws require the sharing of patient data with public health authorities;
  • The importance of organizing business associates;
  • Ways to balance syndromic surveillance with privacy; and more
