Abstract:

We have proposed elsewhere a strategy for releasing medical records via the World Wide Web. The philosophical underpinnings of this proposal balanced a need for access with a need for confidentiality of medical information. Other balance points could have been chosen, and methods of stronger and weaker protection of confidentiality are presented here along with the rationale behind the selected strategy.
