Addressing Minors’ Identity and
Privacy Management in Healthcare

Properly navigating digital patient privacy has long been an essential aspect of providing personalized services for many health and wellness services, no matter the age of the patient. When addressing adolescent patients in digital environments, the legal and ethical landscape is even more complex. Healthcare providers and payers’ engagement with minors becomes a balancing act that demands remote identity proofing, consent and privacy management that comply with a constantly evolving mix of laws and policies that vary from state to state, and consider each child’s emancipation status, and the specific type of associated healthcare or access.
PRIVO Healthcare Solutions make it easier, faster and more secure for healthcare organizations to engage with children and adolescents while complying with evolving industry regulations, privacy rules, and contract law.

Reducing Risk while Enabling Minors’ Rights to Consent to Healthcare



Address this Highly Specialized Market with PRIVO
The Leader in Children’s Online Privacy, Identity & Consent Management

Companies need a reliable approach to confidently distinguish age-appropriate transactions in a manner consistent with regulatory compliance requirements and obtaining custodial consent where needed, while preserving a frictionless experience for the end user.
Engineered specifically to address minors online, PRIVO’s specialized suite of cloud-based solutions and services cover the entire spectrum of identity and privacy needs for companies whose business objectives involve engaging directly or indirectly with youth under the age 18.
Compliance with federal regulations, such as the 21st Century Cures Act, and state-specific consent and confidentiality laws for adolescents requires a reliable mechanism to share protected health information with adolescents without guardian knowledge.
The ability of people younger than 18 (generally, the legal definition of a minor) to consent to a range of sensitive health care services—including sexual and reproductive health care, mental health services, and alcohol and drug abuse treatment—has expanded dramatically over the past several decades.

This trend reflects the recognition that, while involving parents or guardians in young people’s health care decisions is desirable, many young people will not avail themselves of important services if they are forced to involve their parents
