Hippocrates Meets the Data Banks: Patient Privacy in Computer Age
JAMA. 1984 Jul 20; 252(3): 317-319.
Protection of computerized medical records from unauthorized use was a major topic of concern at the 1984 World Congress on Medical Informatics (MedInfo). Summarized here are the comments of speakers from the United States and several European countries on the issues of data and usage integrity, legal protection for computerized patient data, and the implications of international data access and transfer. Participants agreed that governments have a major role to play in enacting consumer-oriented legislation to protect patient records and expanding constitutional privacy rights to include personal data.
