Over the past 20 years, there's been tremendous growth in technology for digital health. From healthcare management software, medical devices, to fitness trackers, there's more health data available about an individual than at any other time.

However, with an increase in data, there's also been an increase in considerations for the secure management of this data. Privacy regulations haven't been able to keep up with the explosion of technological growth.

Jordan Wrigley, Researcher for Health and Wellness at the Future of Privacy Forum, joins the show to share her expertise about digital health data privacy. Sean and Jordan discuss the goals and activities of the Future of Privacy Forum, how culture impacts how an individual thinks about health-related privacy, the shift in concern over health data privacy, and what a company needs to be thinking about when building products that collect or process digital health data.
