Health Information Security & Privacy Collaboration (HISPC)

The HISPC’s third, and final, phase comprised seven multi-state collaborative privacy and security projects focused on analyzing consent data elements in state law; studying intrastate and interstate consent policies; developing tools to help harmonize state privacy laws; developing tools and strategies to educate and engage consumers; developing a toolkit to educate providers; recommending basic security policy requirements; and developing inter-organizational agreements.

Each project was charged with developing common, replicable multi-state solutions that could reduce variation in and harmonize privacy and security practices, policies, and laws.
