Правовое обеспечение электронного документооборота в телемедицине

Информационное право. 2017. № 4. С. 10-15.

Relevance. Rapid development of telemedicine and e-health requires free, legitimate and secure health information exchange. Besides technical solutions an important role in providing health information exchange played by legal and organizational measures. Adoption of the new legislation on the application of information technologies in healthcare increases the relevance of legal issues in this sphere.

Objective. The article addresses the legal aspects of building health information systems, taking into account the rights and legitimate interests of all stakeholders (patients, physicians, healthcare providers, insurance companies, research organizations, etc.).

The main results. In the paper it is reasoned that the architecture of health information systems should be based on principles of centralized storage of data, integration of data from the wide range of sources, increasing usability of the systems, ensuring data dynamism and mobility as well as enhancing the role of patients in management of personal health records.

Also particular attention is paid to security issues of health information systems. The information security measures for such systems include reliable procedures for identification and authorization of subjects, differentiation of access rights to health records, encryption of health data and depersonalization of health data of individual patients. These and other measures will help to ensure the legitimacy of electronic document exchange, as well as to increase the level of patients trust to information technologies used in healthcare.

Applicability and scientific significance. The principles and ideas reflected in the article can be used in law-making process in the area of telemedicine and serve as a basis for the subsequent academic research on the electronic document exchange in the new technological conditions.
