Issues in the Accessibility and Confidentiality of Patient Records
Social Science and Medicine. 1983; 17(16): 1181-1190.
Traditional guidelines regarding the fiduciary relationship between physician and patient are inadequate in a modern health care system. Today both the collection and the disclosure of health information are frequently being carried out by large institutions rather than by individual physicians. Four main problem areas resulting from this change are highlighted, and specific issues within each area are discussed. The problem areas are: (1) basic issues in the accessibility and confidentiality of patient records, (2) the collection and handling of data, (3) patient access to records, and (4) disclosure of patient data.
