Inter-organizational future proof EHR systems. A review of the security and privacy related issues

, : Inter-organizational future proof EHR systems. A review of the security and privacy related issues. International Journal of Medical Informatics 78(3): 141-160

Identification and analysis of privacy and security related issues that occur when health information is exchanged between health care organizations. Based on a generic scenario questions were formulated to reveal the occurring issues. Possible answers were verified in literature. Ensuring secure health information exchange across organizations requires a standardization of security measures that goes beyond organizational boundaries, such as global definitions of professional roles, global standards for patient consent and semantic interoperable audit logs. As to be able to fully address the privacy and security issues in interoperable EHRs and the long-life virtual EHR it is necessary to realize a paradigm shift from storing all incoming information in a local system to retrieving information from external systems whenever that information is deemed necessary for the care of the patient.

BACKGROUND. Neuroendocrine tumor cells in prostate cancer are thought to increase after hormonal therapy due to neuroendocrine differentiation of tumor cells. This assumption is based on the histological analyses of limited portions of the cancer...
