Are you working with highly sensitive data? Do you aspire to be an exemplar in data privacy? Are you concerned about the risk of a privacy breach to your data?
Effective health care provision and patient privacy are not mutually exclusive goals. But achieving both requires thoughtful consideration of the design, implementation and management of health information systems and processes.

Initially collected for direct clinical care, patient data is regularly copied and shared for use in research, auditing, performance management, payment/billing and a host of “secondary uses”.
