IDC Names Securiti a Worldwide Leader in Data PrivacyView
Last Updated on August 17, 2023
Washington's House Bill 1155, better known as the My Health, My Data Act (MHMDA), was passed by the Senate on April 5, 2023, followed by the House on April 17, 2023. Then, on April 27, 2023, Washington Governor Jay Inslee officially signed the Act into law.
The MHMDA came into effect on July 23, 2023, with regulated entities required to be compliant by March 31, 2024. However, small businesses are given a three-month relaxation and are required to be compliant with the MHMDA provisions from June 30, 2024. The law applies to all legal entities that produce or provide products or services targeted at consumers in Washington and that are involved in processing consumer health data.
Under the MHMDA, consumers have the right to access their health data, withdraw consent, and request deletion. Once a consumer makes a request to exercise any of these rights, the organization has a 45-day compliance period to respond to their requests, with extensions possible in specific cases.
The MHMDA has additional significance owing to the recent Supreme Court decision which overturned Roe v. Wade. This has led to several state and federal legislations being moved forward to instill appropriate measures in place to protect the confidentiality of citizens' health data.
