A conflict may exist in Kaiser Permanente's descriptions of its security policies on electronic health records.
Is there a conflict in Kaiser Permanente’s descriptions of its security policies on electronic health records? I will be looking more deeply at this question. It could mean a lot to the veterans in San Diego who are sharing their medical records with Kaiser.
On March 5 I blogged about my interview with Dr. John Mattison, chief medical information officer for Kaiser Permanente Southern California, which includes the San Diego region, who described security and privacy of veterans’ health information held in Kaiser’s systems. The VA and Kaiser are jointly demonstrating health data exchange in the San Diego area.
Today Larry Scott of VA Watchdog.org wrote a blog item suggesting there may be conflicting statements in the two views presented by Kaiser. What do you think?
