You Can't Have That Information: Stakeholder Awareness, Perceptions and Concerns regarding the Disclosure and Use of Personal Health Information (PHI)
This is a comparative study of Health Professionals and the general public on awareness of, and levels of concern with issues of Personal Health Information (PHI) in an electronic era. It is the first systematic study of professional and public attitudes regarding the use, security, and ethical concerns surrounding PHI in Newfoundland and Labrador. Protection of PHI is a highly visible and public issue with wide-ranging consequences for individuals, health professionals, and health institutions. As medical records become electronic, new issues of access, security, and use arise. The province of Newfoundland and Labrador, along with most other Canadian and other national and sub-national jurisdictions, has prepared or is currently preparing legislation covering PHI, ranging from rules on storage and access to ethical considerations underlying these and other issues. NL has a new Health Privacy Act passed that is now in the process of being implemented, making this work particularly relevant.
