Eric Fader was quoted in an article, "Privacy Concerns Hit Ride-Hailing Push Into Health Care," published in Bloomberg BNA's Health Care Daily Report. The article discusses issues that Uber and Lyft will need to address in order to ensure compliance with the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules when their drivers take patients to and from medical appointments. Fader told Bloomberg BNA that Uber and Lyft will have the full names of the patients being driven for billing purposes, and will need to adopt safeguards to prevent any illegal disclosures. To comply with HIPAA's "minimum necessary" standard, Fader added, individual drivers shouldn't be given more than the patient's first name and pickup location. As "business associates" of the health care providers, Uber and Lyft will also need to enter into business associate agreements and implement HIPAA policies and procedures.
