Privacy Issues

  • David Mark N. Paperny
Part of the Health Informatics book series (HI)


Pediatric privacy issues are distinct from those of adult patients because the details of confidentiality and access to child health information vary across social and legal situations and across the age ranges from infancy to young adulthood. Health information technology tools must be able to adapt to those needs and to allow easy access to the personal health information of children in medical care while protecting their rights and privacy.
