Patient privacy and confidentiality

0

Using telemedicine technology, care providers can store and transmit massive amounts of information, resulting in added regulatory challenges. According to the American Hospital Association publication ”Realizing the Promise of Telehealth: Understanding the Legal and Regulatory Challenges”, this capability requires that telemedicine providers to rethink their security practices. 

Digital data transmission increases the risk that undesired parties may intercept and exploit sensitive patient information. As a result, practitioners implementing telemedicine should audit their current security measures and assess how their patient privacy and protection policies protect telemedicine users.
