I have similar sentiments for barring reasons.

As a counter point here is another link of interest that may be more aligned.

That may align with user autonomy and real choices in markets where there are multiple vendors with different privacy policies on offer, but I don't think that that situation is what is on offer in the space that HHS is addressing. On the web, network or market effects usually push most users to a single or limited number of suppliers whose policies will tend to converge and remove choice. In physical space, it's even more clear. If you want to come to our clinic/space/event you MUST accept our terms.

>>> SUMMARY: The Privacy Policy Snapshot Challenge is a call for designers, developers, and health data privacy experts to create an online Model Privacy Notice (MPN) generator. The MPN is a voluntary, openly available resource designed to help health technology developers who collect digital health data clearly convey information about their privacy and security policies to their users. Similar to a nutrition facts label, the MPN provides a snapshot of a product’s existing privacy practices, encouraging transparency and helping consumers make informed choices when selecting products. The MPN does not mandate specific policies or substitute for more comprehensive or detailed privacy policies.
