Abstract:E-healthcare offers tremendous benefits to healthcare stakeholders. Nonetheless, that very same technology poses unprecedented challenges to patient and consumer privacy. While technology itself may resolve some security concerns through encryption and other control mechanisms, privacy issues are too critical to be left to technological resolutions alone. Furthermore, industry self-regulation efforts have not allayed the fears of privacy advocates nor staved off efforts to increase government regulation of privacy interests. This article examines the challenges of health information privacy from ethical, legal and technological perspectives.
