Medical Data Sharing Benefits, Better Privacy Required

A study by the Institute of Medicine found that electronic sharing of patient data collected during healthcare visits could contribute to improving care for the entire population.

Michael Murray, lead author, said "We are missing a tremendous opportunity to turn our health care system into one that learns from each care experience and leads to better and more affordable care for all." But he also noted the public must know their privacy is assured, otherwise they will be less willing to allow their data to be used in health research.

"Electronic sharing of patient data would require stronger security measures to protect patient privacy" ."

Interestingly, identity and access intelligence (IAI) can contribute to both the issues Mr. Murray mentioned. Now available as low-cost on-demand SaaS services, these big data analytics can yield insights into interactions between healthcare workers and patients as well as be utilized to detect data privacy breaches.
