Abstract

In recent years, the interoperability, exchange, privacy, and security of electronic medical records (EMR) across healthcare institution has become an important international issue within medical informatics. Currently Taiwan's electronic medical records exchange center (EEC) system lacks a mechanism for patients to consent to releasing only portions of their EMR. Currently patients must consent to total access when transferring EMR across healthcare institution. This study uses the IHE BPPC profile and HL7 Confidentialitycode to develop privacy polices matrices and patient privacy protect mechanism. Although adding confidentiality codes in Taiwan's electronic medical records would increase the workload for physicians and other healthcare professionals, it would also ensure greater security in the transmission of sensitive information, thereby enhancing the level of security for patients.
