Project title: Legal and ethical considerations for transmission and storage of shared e-health data
Project description: Electronic health records simplify numerous innovations qualified of revolutionizing health care. Despite their advantages, there are legal and ethical issues when coming to transmission and storage of shared e-health data. Key legal considerations that must be addressed in the near future relate to the expanse of clinicians’ responsibilities for reviewing the entire information of integrated e-health records that contain data from different sources, the liabilities imposed by not following clinical decision support recommendations, and tools for clinicians to report in public potential e-health records safety concerns. Ethical considerations that require further discussions relate to requirements that exclude patients from saving electronic record, sale of unidentified patient data by e-health records providers, and teenage control of access to their data. I recommend that international and national organizations, service providers, industry and other interest groups must address these controversial and urgent concerns systematically and jointly. The aim of these discussions should be to find and list solutions, by prioritizing them, to the major legal and ethical considerations addressed.
