Unit 7: Protecting Privacy, Security, and Confidentiality in HIT Systems

Unit 7 is designed to present an overview of the concepts of privacy, security, and confidentiality of protected health information (PHI) in relation to HIT systems.  Threats to PHI frequently encountered in HIT environments such as password sharing, offsite access to EHRS, challenges of staff turn-over and student access, unauthorized access, etc. will be detailed.  Students will be exposed to simulated breeches of privacy, security and confidentiality of PHI in lab exercises, asked to identify, and propose strategies to thwart.
