The Confidentiality Coalition is a broad group of organizations working to ensure that we as a nation find the right balance between the protection of confidential health information and the efficient and interoperable systems needed to provide the very best quality of care.
The Confidentiality Coalition brings together hospitals, medical teaching colleges, health plans, pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufacturers, vendors of electronic health records, biotech firms, employers, health product distributors, pharmacies, pharmacy benefit managers, health information and research organizations, clinical laboratories, home care providers, patient groups, and others. Through this diversity, we are able to develop a nuanced perspective on the impact of any legislation or regulation affecting the privacy and security of health consumers.
We advocate for policies and practices that safeguard the privacy of patients and healthcare consumers while, at the same time, supporting policies that enable the essential flow of information that is critical to the timely and effective delivery of healthcare. Timely and accurate patient information leads to both improvements in quality and safety and the development of new lifesaving and life-enhancing medical interventions.
The Confidentiality Coalition is operated and managed by the Healthcare Leadership Council (HLC). For more information on HLC, visit www.hlc.org.
