Policymakers are working to create and enact effective privacy policies that can protect user privacy and rights. However, for design and engineering practitioners who create innovative technologies, there is often difficulty translating new legislation into privacy principles. This is especially true in healthcare. Join Harvard Kennedy School’s Center for Public Leadership for this workshop, where we will zoom in on the healthcare industry as a case study and ask:
How might we re-imagine meaningful choice and control in sharing personal data in healthcare?
How might we create data privacy legislation that fits the needs of people?
Participants of this interactive workshop will apply human-centered design frameworks to industry use cases with representatives from Boston Children's Hospital, and the U.S. Digital Service team at Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Our goal is to learn and apply various human-centered design frameworks, facilitate conversation across sectors, prototype policy in a group setting, and gather insights about the challenges of data collection.
Findings will be applicable across different sectors, so there is no healthcare expertise necessary. We hope you will join us!
