3132.0 Consumer and Provider Views: EHR and PHR on Security, Privacy and Confidentiality

Monday, November 9, 2009: 10:30 AM
Security and privacy considerations represent a substantial barrier to the widespread adoption of personal health records (PHRs). This session will examine how these concerns have been expressed among vulnerable communities. Persons with disabilities and communities of color can benefit from the national trend toward HIT, but targeted outreach will be necessary given their historical mistrust of America's public health system.
Session Objectives: *Describe unique and shared perspectives about privacy, security and confidentiality concerns among minority populations, and people with disabilities. *Discuss policy goals achievable through personal health records in diverse communities, including among persons with mental disorders.
