4105.1 The Challenge of Implementing Electronic Health Records for Practitioners & the Public: Recommendations from APHA Member Groups (PHN, Genomics, EPI, Ethics, Family Violence, CHPPD) - Part 2

Tuesday, November 10, 2009: 10:30 AM
While some ethical concerns are common to clinical and public health electronic records as expressed in privacy requirements for personal health information (HIPAA), additional ethical and practical challenges intersect in the HIIT implementation of EHRs for public health practitioners and the public. Several of these specific questions will be addressed during this session.
Session Objectives: *Identify how the selection of an ethical framework impacts the use of EHRs and their implementation. *Identify opportunities and challenges associated with research applications of data collected via EHRs.
