In the rapidly evolving landscape of healthcare, the intersection of data privacy, security, and sustainability poses complex legal and ethical challenges. As healthcare systems increasingly digitize patient records and employ innovative technologies, ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of sensitive data is paramount. This paper explores the intricate relationship between data privacy, security, and sustainability in healthcare, examining the legal frameworks, ethical considerations, and practical strategies for navigating this dynamic terrain. Drawing on a multidisciplinary approach, this study delves into the regulatory landscape governing healthcare data, including the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) in the United States and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the European Union. It analyzes the implications of these regulations for healthcare providers, technology vendors, and patients, highlighting the need for robust data governance frameworks and risk management strategies to safeguard against breaches and unauthorized access. Finally, this paper explores innovative approaches to promoting data privacy and security in sustainable healthcare, including the use of encryption, blockchain technology, and federated learning. It discusses the potential benefits and challenges of these technologies, as well as their implications for regulatory compliance and ethical best practices.
