Panel drafts privacy recommendations for health data exchanges
A "tiger team" that advises the federally charted Health IT Policy Committee will submit a list of recommendations on Thursday for ensuring the privacy and security of personally identifiable health information in Health Data Exchanges.
The recommendations were developed in response to a specific set of privacy-related questions raised by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology. They touch upon and clarify topics such as patient consent and the use of third-party service providers in the exchange of personally identifiable health information.
