Premier Premiere - A Delicate Balance: Sharing Sensitive Health Information Electronically

May 1, 2009

At Wednesday's Consumer Network for Healthcare e-Quality Lunch (part of the HCFA e-health lunch series), Jerilyn Heinold and Diane Stone, HISPC (Health Information Security and Privacy Collaborative, a federal-state initiative) Directors, discussed the many varied consumer-centric HISPC projects (ppt) that they have been working on, including a guide to patient rights, a personal health record inventory, and a guide and a tutorial on sensitive health information. The video is also part of this initiative and inspired a lively discussion, underscoring the importance and value of consumer engagement in this work.
