Privacy Protection for Addiction Treatment Providers Using Information Technology
How do we protect patient privacy and confidentiality in a connected world? As electronic data transfer has become the norm and data from sensors is linked with mobile app data and EHR data, we have the ability to learn more about our patients individually and as a population. But what are the potential consequences and how can we improve care while protecting patient rights?
As a result of this presentation, attendees will be able to:
- Understand how data flows through healthcare systems and to other systems
- Discuss the pros and cons of data aggregation and sharing
- Articulate the ethical dilemmas underlying the discussion about statute and regulatory revision
