PHRs and Patient Privacy

April 3, 2008

In an interview on iHealthbeat, some of the leaders in PHRs talk about the need for higher standards of privacy for PHRs. The comments are from:

  • John Halamka has lots to say – see his blog post from HIMSS in February
  • David Lansky notes 18 issues which the Markle Foundation would post in the near future
  • Mark Leavitt sees the need for a national dialog in the next few years
  • Deborah Peel – all products should have an external audit

This brief but provocative audio report illustrates some of the controversies in PHRs which need to be sorted out in order to gain more general acceptance and adoption.
