From Hippocratic Oath to Informatic Oath
Last updated: Dec 6, 2015
InputHealth is committed to protecting the privacy and security of our client’s data at all costs, especially when it comes to the valuable personal health information of patients. We acknowledge a worrisome trend in the electronic health record world where vendors are introducing the “fine print” which allows questionable practices often under the pretext that data is being used in an anonymized format. However, there is an increasing body of evidence which indicates that in fact there is no way to truly anonymize many forms of data in a world of metadata sources.
We therefore commit ourselves to our very own Informatic Oath which dictates the basic tenants of our principles with regards to data handling.
We are proud of our Informatic Oath and will continually evolve this document with changing technology and business practices which affect our customer’s valuable data.
