Healthcare Data Privacy Research Project
Department: Legal Studies
Supervisor: Joseph Welsh
With increasing technology, healthcare institutions have begun to face physical and cyber threats. They are required to protect the personal and health information of their patients. As an example of cyber attacks, we can illustrate the data breach cases. Against these threats, hospitals should establish data protection systems and perform this process under certain laws and rules.
The goal of this project is to understand:
- Requirements of Healthcare Data Protection
- How This Information is Protected?
- What Are the Violations?
- How Can Patient Report Violations?
- What are the consequences of violations?
