Electronic Health Record in Italy and Personal Data Protection

Risultato della ricerca: Meeting Abstractpeer review

Abstract

The present article deals with the Italian Electronic Health Record (hereinafter EHR), recently introduced by Act 221/2012, with a specific focus on personal data protection. Privacy issues - e.g., informed consent, data processing, patients' rights and minors' will - are discussed within the framework of recent e-Health legislation, national Data Protection Code, the related Data Protection Authority pronouncements and EU law. The paper is aimed at discussing the problems arising from a complex, fragmentary and sometimes uncertain legal framework on e-Health.
