Improving Hipaa Enforcement And Protecting Patient Privacy In A Digital Healthcare Environment, Roger Hsieh Jan 2014

Improving Hipaa Enforcement And Protecting Patient Privacy In A Digital Healthcare Environment, Roger Hsieh

Loyola University Chicago Law Journal

Electronic medical records (“EMRs”) have helped healthcare organizations improve patient care, but EMRs are susceptible to exposing the confidentiality of patients’ medical records to identity thieves and members of the general public. The federal enforcement of patient privacy law—notably the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”), which was designed to deter and punish breaches of patient privacy—has failed to keep pace with new privacy risks posed by healthcare technology. Although federal legislation now allows state Attorneys General to file suit under HIPAA, for reasons explained in this Article, they too will not enforce HIPAA effectively. Because institutional ...


Millennium Development Goal 4, Children's Health And Implementation Challenges In Africa: Does A Human Rights Based Appoach Suffice?, Obi Nnamuchi Jan 2014

Millennium Development Goal 4, Children's Health And Implementation Challenges In Africa: Does A Human Rights Based Appoach Suffice?, Obi Nnamuchi

Loyola University Chicago International Law Review

That the state of children’s health in Africa is abysmal is incontrovertible. Proof, if there is need for one, is the perennial underperformance of the vast majority of countries in the region in key dimensions of children’s health and wellbeing. Nonetheless, the point of interest in health policy literature is not on the underperformance per se but on the underlying causes and possible antidotes – a reason Millennium Development Goal (MDG) 4 (on reducing child mortality) holds special significance for countries in the region. This paper advances scholarship in this very critical area by projecting human rights as holding ...

Should All Drugs Be Patentable?: A Comparative Perspective, Cynthia M. Ho Jan 2014

Should All Drugs Be Patentable?: A Comparative Perspective, Cynthia M. Ho

Faculty Publications & Other Works

Although there has been substantial discussion of the proper scope of patentable subject matter in recent years, drugs have been overlooked. This Article begins to address that gap with a comparative perspective. In particular, this Article considers what is permissible under the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS), as well as how India and Canada have utilized TRIPS flexibilities in different ways to properly reward developers of valuable new drugs, while also considering the social harm of higher prices beyond an initial patent term on drugs.

This Article brings valuable insight into this area at a critical ...

Financial Conflicts Of Interest In Science, Joanna K. Sax Jan 2012

Financial Conflicts Of Interest In Science, Joanna K. Sax

Annals of Health Law

This Article proposes a new direction for addressing financial conflicts of interest, which plague biomedical research and threaten scientific integrity. This Article descriptively states the controversy surrounding financial conflicts of interest by explaining how these conflicts arise and the damage that can be created as a result. By describing the scientific process, the Article explains that changes to the academic environment may allow the public-private interaction to proceed, without creating the problems associated with financial conflicts of interest.

Financial conflicts of interest are created when the profit-seeking motive of a private funding source unduly influences an academic scientist's primary ...


Putting Together The Pieces: Recent Proposals To Fill In The Genetic Testing Regulatory Puzzle, Serra J. Schlanger Jan 2012

Putting Together The Pieces: Recent Proposals To Fill In The Genetic Testing Regulatory Puzzle, Serra J. Schlanger

Annals of Health Law

The idea that genetic information is different from other medical information and therefore needs special protection has led to a regulatory puzzle where genetic testing is currently regulated under three separate schemes. Although genetic tests for over 2,000 diseases are available, less than 10% of these tests have been reviewed for clinical validity or utility. Recent action by some genetic testing companies has prompted the federal government to propose changes to the current regulatory scheme. This article discusses the current framework and the recent developments before examining some of the concerns and challenges that face the implementation of these ...
