A business that is subject to the My Health, My Data Act should take the following steps by March 31, 2024 (or June 30, 2024, if the business is a “small business”):

  • Privacy Policy: The business needs to draft and publish a Privacy Policy that discloses the ways in which the business collects, processes, or shares consumer health data. The Privacy Policy must include the following elements:

    • The categories of consumer health data collected and the purpose for which the data is collected, including how the data will be used;
    • The categories of sources from which the consumer health data is collected;
    • The categories of consumer health data that is shared;
    • A list of the categories of third parties and specific affiliates with whom the business shares the consumer health data; and
    • How a consumer can exercise the rights provided in the Act.

  • Consent Form: If the business collects, uses, or shares consumer health data for purposes other than providing a product or service that the consumer requested, the business must ensure that consumers sign a consent form that permits the business to collect, use, or share consumer health data in such a manner.
  • Internal Policies: The business needs to draft internal policies for: (1) limiting access to consumer health data to an “as needed” basis, (2) establishing and maintaining data security practices that meet industry standards; and (3) handling consumer requests related to consumer health data.
  • Processor Contracts: The business needs to enter into contracts with any individuals or entities that “process” consumer health data on behalf of the business.
  • Authorization for Sale of Data: If the business sells consumer health data, the business needs to ensure that consumers sign a separate authorization permitting the sale of consumer health data.
