Health Information Exchange Depends on Trust
Last week we were at the Redwood MedNet conference in Santa Rosa, CA where we anchored the panel on “Security and Health Information Exchange.” Our Chief Medical Officer, William R. “Bill” Braithwaite, MD, PhD, FACMI, FHL7, highlighted the need for trust within the health information exchange network in order to ensure that patients and providers use systems effectively to drive high quality, cost-effective healthcare.
Dr. Braithwaite emphasized that trust depends on assurance that
- the person who is sending information is who say they are
- the person who is receiving information is who we think they are-including mechanisms to prevent information from being changed or viewed by anyone else
- the patient identified in the information is who we think they are
He reviewed the national standards for building trust into networks, including the DEA rulings about electronic prescriptions of controlled substances and the suggested standards for security in cyberspace. Read more about his presentation here.
