[Internet Society Blogs] A New Hippocratic Oath: “First, do no harm… to me or my healthcare data »

I was recently invited to contribute a paper on personal data in the healthcare context to a journal on the Privacy and Security of Medical Information published by Springer-Nature. The paper, “Trust and ethical data handling in the healthcare context ” examines the issues associated with healthcare data in terms of ethics, privacy, and trust, and makes recommendations about what we, as individuals, should ask for and expect from the organisations we entrust with our most sensitive personal data.

It’s a topical subject, from an Internet Society perspective, because the Internet appears to offer some attractive solutions to pressing problems that confront people and governments, around the globe.
