Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, Nationwide Privacy and Security Framework for Electronic Exchange of Individually Identifiable Health Information (Dec. 15, 2008) (full-text).
The principles discussed in this report establish a single, consistent approach to address the privacy and security challenges related to electronic health information exchange through a network for all persons, regardless of the legal framework that may apply to a particular organization. The goal of this effort is to establish a policy framework for electronic health information exchange that can help guide the U.S.'s adoption of health information technologies and help improve the availability of health information and health care quality. The principles have been designed to establish the roles of individuals and the responsibilities of those who hold and exchange electronic individually identifiable health information through a network.
