Campaign: Developers and HIPAA

Can HIPAA address patient generated data?

Developers need better guidance around patient generated health data, since HIPAA focusses on one-way data sharing from a provider/other covered entity outward to the patient/other entity. In the future, more and more data will be flowing in the opposite direction, and there should be guidance to clarify that HIPAA should not prevent the flow of information from the patient back to the provider.
