TEDx Talks
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Deborah Peel, MD talks about the "biggest data breach you've never heard of," the privacy data breach. Privacy is basic for healing and trust in health care. Dr. Peel describes how HIPAA does protect individuals' data but subsequent implementation stripped out consent. Without a chain of custody for health data, it is hard to track who is using it and how. It is valuable information, and is sold legally, millions of times a day, without our knowledge.

Deborah C. Peel, MD is the world's leading advocate for patients' rights to control the use of personal health information in electronic systems. She is also a practicing physician and Freudian psychoanalyst. She became an expert and privacy warrior to stop patients from being harmed. The lack of health privacy causes millions of US citizens to avoid early diagnosis and treatment for cancer, depression, and STDs every year.

Her passion is informing the public about privacy-enhancing technologies and the major fixes needed in law and policy, so they can join the battle to restore our civil and human rights to health privacy.
