Health privacy law will lead to offshoring of clinical research

In an earlier blog entry, I referred to a press release that claimed the HIPAA privacy rule will hinder clinical research. Now, UPI is carrying a story that says this will lead to the "offshoring" of clinical trials:

Health privacy law hinders research - (United Press International):

"... Dr. Roberta Ness, of the University of Pittsburgh's Graduate School of Public Health, told the American College of Epidemiology conference in Boston this week unless the law is significantly changed many clinical studies could be moved off-shore and out of reach of U.S. regulations..."

Thanks to SANS PrivacyBits for the link.
