Data data everywhere : access and accountability? / edited by Colleen M. Flood. McGill-Queen's University Press, c2011.

R864.D38 2011

 

As health-care providers enter the digital world and computerize their patients' records in an effort to improve the efficiency and quality of care, they are also building a valuable health research tool. The files in their databases may contain the answers to many medical questions we currently face, but they also contain private information that could potentially be misused. This book highlights the challenges that lie ahead and proposes a uniquely Canadian framework for striking a balance between the benefits of allowing researchers to access medical information and the privacy concerns of individuals. In addition to contributing towards a sustainable model for secondary use of data in health research, the book also serves as an essential comparative reference for similar jurisdictions.
