Some key quotes:
“The PPR Trust Framework is … designed to help organizations ensure that technology and IT systems align with the privacy requirements of critical importance to patients and reflect their legal and ethical rights to health information privacy,” Peel says.
“The framework was developed by a group within Patient Privacy Rights – the bipartisan Coalition for Patient Privacy – along with Microsoft and the consulting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers, Peel says. It was developed, tested and validated on Microsoft’s HealthVault personal health record platform.”
“Ensuring the privacy of patient data is a key concern for any healthcare IT vendor,” says Sean Nolan, distinguished engineer, Microsoft HealthVault. “Microsoft as a company advocates for a more standardized federal approach to the privacy of data, and this is especially true for the HealthVault team. We believe that it takes a deep corporate commitment to the privacy of patient data in order to support initiatives such as the PPR Trust Framework.”
