Secondary Uses of Health Information - Benefits & Concerns
Original broadcast date: July 14, 2011
With the national move to digital health records come potential benefits and concerns about inappropriate use of this information. National policy efforts to date have largely focused on the use of electronic health records (EHRs) for treatment of patients, but EHRs will also be sources of information for so-called "secondary" purposes, such as public health and private research efforts. What are the important secondary purposes for data from EHRs? How is this information being used for commercial purposes? What are the standards and best practices available for organizations involved in these transactions? Join us as our expert panel explores these issues from practical, legal, regulatory and ethical viewpoints to gain insight into how best to manage policy for your organization.
