A Foolproof Privacy and Security Plan

GovernmentHealthIT published an article today titled Experts offer advice for creating a foolproof privacy and security plan for sharing patient information. Key points:

1. Think nationally, act locally
2. Use available tools
3. Bring the right people to the table
4. Be broad but restrictive
5. Study HIPAA (or whatever privacy legislation applies to you - italics mine) then go beyond it
6. Keep the focus on the patient

Useful advice.
