Description/Learning Objectives: Net Neutrality is the principle that all Internet service providers should enable equal access to all content found on the web, regardless of its source. In December 2017, the Federal Communications Commission voted to rescind laws that made it illegal to block/throttle content; in this class, we will consider how both more recent responses and possible future changes can impact patients and healthcare, in areas including: telemedicine; remote monitoring; access to cloud-based EHRs; addressing health disparities; encouraging digital based healthcare innovation; and patient access to online health content such as articles and videos.
