Patient Privacy, Consent, and Identity Management in Health Information Exchange: Issues for the Military Health System

Excerpt

This report presents findings for a project entitled “Policy Issues for Health Information Technology and Health Informatics,” for which RAND was asked to analyze policy issues related to the development of a research initiative on health information technology and health informatics within the Department of Defense’s (DoD’s) Military Health System (MHS). The project was in support of a Joint Program Committee-1b (JPC-1b) effort to develop a roadmap for the research initiative.

RAND was asked to focus on policy, research findings, and experiences with respect to patient privacy, consent, and identity management as relevant to health information exchange (HIE). The report focuses specifically on HIE between DoD, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), and civilian health care providers who treat the departments’ beneficiaries. In addition to policymakers involved in managing health information technology and health information exchange in DoD and VA, the report should be of interest to audiences interested in health information exchange for a large, nationally distributed patient population.

The U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command, Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC), sponsored this study. It was conducted jointly by RAND Health and the RAND Arroyo Center, a federally funded research and development center for the U.S. Army.

The Project Unique Identification Code (PUIC) for the project that produced this document is HQD116051.
