Privacy in the modern age of technology is not limited to a set of rules that restrict or prohibit how data can be used.

This paper provides a comprehensive framework for building and managing a health care privacy program (also referred to throughout this paper as a health care privacy function) based on the collective insights from in-house and external privacy counsel.
