Privacy Considerations and Risks of an EHR
Considerations
Risks
•
Allow for the collection, use
and disclosure of large
amounts of health information
from diverse sources
•
Increases the risk of health
care providers using or
disclosing health information
for unauthorized purposes
•
Health care providers do not
have sole custody or control
of health information in a
shared system
•
May attract hackers and
others with malicious intent
•
Easier to remove health
information from a secure
location and to transfer it to
an unsecure device
•
Health care providers have
different processes for
implementing patient consent
models
