Information Accountability Framework for a Trusted Health Care System
Sahama, Tony R. & Iannella, Renato (2010) Information Accountability Framework for a Trusted Health Care System. In Proceedings of the 18th Annual Health Informatics Conference: Informing the Business of Healthcare, Health Informatics Society of Australia Ltd, Melbourne, VIC, pp. 79-85.
Trusted health care outcomes are patient centric. Requirements to ensure both the quality and sharing of patients’ health records are a key for better clinical decision making. In the context of maintaining quality health, the sharing of data and information between professionals and patients is paramount. This information sharing is a challenge and costly if patients’ trust and institutional accountability are not established. Establishment of an Information Accountability Framework (IAF) is one of the approaches in this paper. The concept behind the IAF requirements are: transparent responsibilities, relevance of the information being used, and the establishment and evidence of accountability that all lead to the desired outcome of a Trusted Health Care System. Upon completion of this IAF framework the trust component between the public and professionals will be constructed. Preservation of the confidentiality and integrity of patients’ information will lead to trusted health care outcomes.
