re: Boston Children's Hospital Tackles Teen Records Privacy
This is one of the most
ridiculous things that I ever read. How can they deny the parent the knowledge
of a mental health issue in their 13 year old? The HIPAA Laws were put in place
to protect adults privacy, their children should fall under their guardians on
this, not completely separate. A person is not considered an adult until 18 for
a reason, one of those is they are not capable of making appreciate health
decisions regarding their personal health,

re: Boston Children's Hospital Tackles Teen Records Privacy
This article raises a very valid point when it comes to doctor-patient confidentiality in the case where the patient isnGt over 18 years of age. Man adolescents may be afraid to see a physician for fear of their parents finding out that what they have been doing and may be putting their health at risk. I like the idea of having a patient portal for the patient and one for the guardian where they can filter the type of information available to each user. I do believe though that the physician should have enough good sense that they could filter out this information manually until a better mechanism has been developed for their EHRs.
