David Harlow

I am a health care attorney and consultant. I am a cancer survivor and have had close family members go through significant medical crises. My multiple perspectives on the health care system help me do a better job representing health care innovators working on improving health and healthcare, and advocating on behalf of patient groups seeking to ensure that patient-centeredness remains a core value of our system. Areas of focus include health data privacy and security, as well as health data access. I blog, I speak, I host a podcast, I tweet, all in an effort to share information about healthcare innovation, and to do it in something approaching plain English.
