New Privacy Board announced: The American Health Information Community, that group set up by HHS to coordinate governmental and private entities to develop and streamline medical information technology concerns, has put together a separate Confidentiality, Privacy and Security Workgroup. Developing a nationwide health information network is seen by some as a threat to privacy, and some people might react to that threat by keeping their information out of the network, which would hinder the network's ultimate operability. This workgroup is intended to help address those concerns. BNA story on it is here, but you need a subscription.
