Electronic Health Records

Full Title: Electronic Health Records: Achieving an effective and ethical legal and recordkeeping framework
Dates: 2002 – 2004

This project took place within the context of proposals for a nationally coordinated distributed system of electronic health records. Without any systematic ethical and legal safeguards or recordkeeping framework, the application of new technologies for networking health records lacks social credibility.

This multidisciplinary study used the Records Continuum as a recordkeeping framework to provide a set of principles and standards relating to authenticity, ownership, access, privacy and confidentiality of doctor-patient communications in a networked environment.
