The conflict between accountability and confidentiality in Medicare's access to psychiatrists? notes

, : The conflict between accountability and confidentiality in Medicare's access to psychiatrists? notes. Australasian Psychiatry 19(6): 489-492

The aims of this paper were to identify a conflict between psychiatrists? obligations regarding patient confidentiality and Medicare's auditing procedures, and to examine potential resolutions to the conflict. While it is reasonable for Medicare, as a taxpayer-funded instrumentality, to require documentary evidence to substantiate and justify claims, such a requirement constitutes a significant breach of patient confidentiality. Obtaining patient consent appears to be the only ethical resolution of the issue.
