Data Privacy Alert! New Law Enacted in Virginia

David Reim, Chief Privacy Officer

DMD’s Lab Report: The Art & Science of Healthcare Email explores insights, trends, and obstacles affecting healthcare email. From strategy to creative, deployment to reporting, we aim to address the most pressing issues healthcare marketers face.

In the Lab Report, we aim to keep healthcare marketers apprised of significant changes surrounding email marketing. As Virginia becomes the third state to enact state-level data privacy legislation, this news is worthy of “front page” status for April’s edition.

On March 2, 2021, Virginia governor Ralph Northam signed into law the “Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act” (CDPA). It follows in the footsteps of California’s Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), a second California law—the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA)—and Nevada’s SB220.

Virginia’s law introduces new wrinkles into the current U.S. data privacy landscape. Here are some key points for healthcare marketers to consider.

Data Privacy Gains Momentum: Current and Future Legislation, Healthcare Impact, and 2021 Predictions

David Reim, Chief Privacy Officer

Last year around this time we presented on data privacy trends, regulations, and predictions for 2020. Some of those predictions didn’t materialize for various reasons; COVID-19 included. State and federal legislators had a lot on their plates, so less urgent policies were put on hold.

However, we did see a trickle-down effect from California’s proactive stance on data privacy. An increasing number of organizations—including those in healthcare—are stepping up to meet consumers’ data privacy demands. These companies are not waiting for legislative action. Rather, they’ve anticipated the inevitable and understand the benefits of establishing trust with their target audiences.

Our recent webinar, “Data Privacy 2021: The Journey Continues,” reflected this growing trend in data privacy legislation. Here are some key highlights of the presentation, which focused on state- and federal-level legislation, how data privacy impacts healthcare marketers, and what to expect in the coming months.
