Practical issues when designing an information accountability framework for eHealth systems

Gajanayake, Mudiyanselage Nuwan Randike (2013) Practical issues when designing an information accountability framework for eHealth systems. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis is the result of an investigation into information privacy management in eHealth. It explores the applicability of accountability measures as a means of protection of eHealth consumer privacy. The thesis presented a new concept of Accountable eHealth Systems for achieving a balance between the information privacy concerns of eHealth consumers and the information access requirements of healthcare professionals and explored the social, technological and implementation aspects involved in such a system.
