Personal Health Information - The Patient's Electronic File
Information systems in the healthcare setting
mature and become more widely integrated, and
there is value in revisiting our understanding of
record-keeping by healthcare professionals with
respect to their patients. This involves understanding
that (1) information is different from
the media on which the information is stored or
displayed, (2) healthcare delivery systems require
the sharing of portions of that information
for efficient and effective operations, (3) payors
also need access to portions of that information,
and (4) governments and very large provider
organizations require the big data for epidemiologic
and best practices analyses. Reproduced with permission of the publisher LexisNexis Canada Inc. from Electronic Healthcare Law Review, Vol. 5, No. 2, November 2015.
