Lawmakers introduced federal and state privacy laws to protect individuals’ medical, legal, and educational records. However, to examine public health issues across communities and to provide integrated care plans for individuals across systems, we often need to share information to improve people’s lives. While laws prohibit data sharing to protect individuals, agencies can share information across sectors with either client permission and/or data use agreements. Understanding the legal, moral, and practical barriers to data sharing is essential to ensure we can share data when necessary. Denise Chrysler and Crystal Ward Allen will present the real-world challenges to data sharing and focus on practical solutions.
