Privacy will be an issue for digital health records

Recently at the Nassbaum on Design blog, Nassbaum looks at the recent Facebook privacy blowout the company had with Gen Y and their private data. Social media takes information given to them by the consumers and sells it, and are just now realizing that this private data should be able to be controlled by the users. We can take this example and turn it to digital health records. All of the privacy issues need to be resolved before any of the health records are digitized, as all contents are held private by every person that is documents.

Is patient privacy something that worries you with the oncoming use of digital records?
