IT adviser wants docs in control of data contracts

An information technology consultant to physician groups has a prescription for doctors confronted by IT system vendors wanting to own, control and sell their patients’ data.
Physicians should take control of the contracting process themselves and put limits on how the data can be used to protect both the physician-patient bond of trust and the financial interests of the medical group, said Thomas Roovers, founder and chief executive officer of T.G. Roovers & Associates, Wausau, Wis.
