Privacy 2.0

May 26, 2008

Fred Frotin on the World Healthcare Blog has introduced the concept of Privacy 2.0.  Privacy and confidentiality have been growing concerns for Web 2.0 in health care. The post, titled, “Coming to Health Care: The Challenge of Privacy 2.0″ He notes that “confidential information predominately resides today in slow moving, conservative institutions that dominate health care delivery.” Privacy 1.0 was focused on, “how to impose rules and sanctions regarding things like disclosure, notice, encryption etc.”

He asks, “Do we have to accept a diminished private space to gain the benefits of social media?” Will the technology of control enable a Privacy 2.0 or will a backlash by consumers overreach and squelch Health 2.0, Google Health and others?

Patient Privacy Rights Foundation has launched a toolkit for healthcare consumers. It includes forms such as How to talk to your doctor, action items such as Petition Advocacy 101, complaint form to HHS and more. Looks like a good start and hopefully will be added to over time.
