Technology Muddies Informed Consent Part 2

My previous post “Technology Muddies Informed Consent” is an excerpt from a slightly longer piece that examines the dehumanizing effect of information technology as it applies to healthcare, the coming role of personal health records and their potential role in helping manage informed consent, and the bifurcation of the meaning of informed consent itself thanks to the increasingly complicated world of managing data use derived from healthcare encounters. The entire piece is available: Download the pdf here. This will be one of many challenges we face as clinical data, privacy issues and patient control converge. Your comments are welcomed of course!
