California's Dreaming of Tougher Health-Care Privacy

On August 2, Eric Fader was quoted in an article, "California's Dreaming of Tougher Health-Care Privacy," published in Bloomberg Law's Health Law & Life Sciences News. The article discusses the California Consumer Privacy Act, a new law that gives consumers the right to know how much of their personal data is being collected by companies and the right to have that data deleted upon request, among other provisions. The law applies to manufacturers of consumer health wearables and apps, for example, and its reach extends to companies located anywhere in the U.S. that do business in California. Fader told Bloomberg Law that other states are likely to enact their own privacy laws modeled after California's, and that differences in wording among the various states' laws may make compliance with all of them a complex process for a large company.
