Protected Health Information
Redaction in Medical Malpractice Litigation
Redaction is often used in medical malpractice litigation to hide the identities of patients who aren’t parties to the lawsuit. Materials needing editing generally do not comprise medical reports since these are unique to the patient whose case is in dispute. Instead, documents that require redaction are those that might infringe on other patients’ privacy.
Doctor-Patient Confidentiality and Privacy in Telehealth
Concerns regarding the privacy and protection of telehealth systems will adversely affect the trust of people in telehealth and undermine the ability of these systems to enhance health care efficiency, quality, and effectiveness. More stringent standards and regulations may be required not only for telehealth but also for all electronic user information to ensure effective privacy and security protections.
HIPAA and New Privacy Risks with Tech Firms
Regardless of where your corporation stands, whether your company falls on the side of compliance with HIPAA or as a private firm, you’re allowed the loophole, it would be smart to not take advantage of patient information. Trust from citizens and consumers can make or break a business.
Secure Video Surveillance for Patient Monitoring
Despite posing a threat to privacy and the dangers of its misuse by the officials, the usefulness of CCTV systems cannot be denied. These systems must be designed in ways that not only protect privacy and freedom while protecting the people against security threats, but they must also be able to prevent or detect any abusive usages by using techniques such as logging, encryption, video redaction, and authorization control mechanisms.
