Privacy, Security, and Ethics

Privacy, Security, and Ethics Program Transcript

SUZANNE PAONE: Unfortunately, we do have leaders in health care who come from backgrounds where
they’ve never dealt with security and privacy and data security issues. And there’s an opportunity
there. There’s an educational opportunity to help leaders understand how they have to focus on this
topic and invest in this topic.

[MUSIC PLAYING]

SUZANNE PAONE: Health care data are alike other fields and different than other fields. Health data
contain demographics, for instance– social security numbers, birth dates, addresses. However,
health care also contains sensitive clinical information, as we know– so a person’s laboratory
records, for example, or something that, if compromised, have a different impact on that individual
than purely a financial impact.

There are also issues related to the volume of data now in that as hospitals and physicians
automate, more and more health care data is available. So therefore, bad actors are placing more
emphasis on possibly trying to exploit health care data because of the popularity of automating
health care systems today.

Securing data and making data available to consumers is a balancing act. And other industries have
come ahead of health care in doing this. If people want their data, it is their data. And we have
to provide that data to them in as ethical and secure manner as possible, much like banking or any
other industry, frankly.

GRANT SHEVCHIK: Patients are looking more and more for convenient health care. And one of the
things that they’re doing is looking to be able to have visits online. Along with that though comes
the aspect of, how do you keep all that private? While they’re online, while it’s taking place, how
do you build a firewall? Where do you store this data? Where do you keep the information?

That is a new challenge, which a lot of other places have, again, dealt with. The banking business
is doing that now. We need to be aware of that. But again, our situation is unique because we have
medical diagnoses linked to it.

SUZANNE PAONE: Leaders need to take steps in ensuring that proper resources are available, such as
technical resources to provide firewalls, technical network security, secure servers, and the staff
that are needed to ensure that those technical aspects are in place.

Leaders also need to work with marketing organizations, or operations in their organizations, to
ensure that the consumers doing those online activities

Assignment: Policy/Regulation Fact Sheet

As a professional nurse, you are expected to apply your expertise to patient care. On occasion, you will also be expected to share that expertise.

With evolving technology and continuous changes to regulations designed to keep up these changes, there is usually a need to share information and expertise to inform colleagues, leadership, patients, and other stakeholders.

In this Assignment, you will study a recent nursing informatics-related healthcare policy, and you will share the relevant details via a fact sheet designed to inform and educate.

To Prepare:

  • Review the Resources on healthcare policy and regulatory/legislative topics related to health and nursing informatics.
  • Consider the role of the nurse informaticist in relation to a healthcare organization’s compliance with various policies and regulations, such as the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA).
  • Research and select one health or nursing informatics policy (within the past 5 years) or regulation for further study.

The Assignment: (1 page)

Create a 1-page fact sheet that your healthcare organization could hypothetically use to explain the health or nursing informatics policy/regulation you selected. Your fact sheet should address the following:

  • Briefly and generally explain the policy or regulation you selected.
  • Address the impact of the policy or regulation you selected on system implementation.
  • Address the impact of the policy or regulation you selected on clinical care, patient/provider interactions, and workflow.
  • Highlight organizational policies and procedures that are/will be in place at your healthcare organization to address the policy or regulation you selected. Be specific.

By Day 5 of Week 11

Submit your completed Policy/Regulation Fact Sheet.
