Comments of CDT to HHS on PCAST

The Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT), through its Health Privacy Project, promotes comprehensive, workable privacy and security policies to protect health data as it is exchanged using information technology. CDT submits these comments in response to the December 10, 2010, Request for Information (RFI) issued by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of the National Coordinator (ONC).

The RFI concerned the implications of the recent report by the Presidentʼs Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) on how to achieve the nationʼs health information technology (HIT) goals.
