Relevant Healthcare Lawsuits and Rulings
There’s been a recent spate of lawsuits and violations alleging that tracking technologies, such as trackers, pixels, and cookies, collect sensitive information from website visitors and share it with third parties without the user’s consent. This activity violates data privacy laws like HIPAA, the CPRA, and wiretapping laws. Several companies even consider this type of unauthorized data sharing a data breach to their customers.
Glow, a fertility tracking app, reaches a $250,000 settlement with the California AG for violating the Confidentiality of Medical Information Act (CMIA).
Meta, UCSF Medical, and Dignity Health sued over sharing healthcare data with the DB pixel under various data privacy laws. Numerous additional class-action suits against hospitals have followed.
Lawsuits emerge, starting with Zillow, Expedia, and Lowe’s, under wiretapping laws due to marketing trackers.
Advocate Aurora Health reports a breach to 3 million patients for the use of the pixel. Other providers have followed.
GoodRx was fined by FTC under HIPAA laws due to patient data sharing. BetterHelp also gets fined for its misuse of online trackers.
