Illinois Information Trust Institute leads HHS program on Health Information Privacy and Security

Further, electronic records are vulnerable to Internet-based attacks if they are put online to increase accessibility.

Health information exchange plays a crucial role whenever patients and their healthcare providers are not in the same place -- for example, when a patient seeks emergency care while traveling far from home, or a patient's primary care physician wishes to consult a specialist who is located at another institution in another state. However, such information exchange is greatly complicated by the fact that providers at different locations may be subject to different laws and institutional policies, and may face different security threat levels. Furthermore, multiple providers may be using different health information systems that are not compatible with each other.

Finally, telemedicine -- technologies that enable individuals to monitor and manage their health in settings outside hospitals -- is already being used to support a broad range of health and wellness goals, such as chronic disease management and independent aging.
