In a lawsuit that could become a class action, the mother of a pediatric psychiatric patient alleges University of Louisville Health shares personal health information of patients with Meta – Facebook’s parent company – in violation of federal privacy laws, reports the Louisville Courier Journal. The suit claims the data includes prescription drug histories and diagnoses, and that the information is automatically sent to Meta through computer code known as the Meta Pixel, embedded into U of L Health’s website.
