Research Proposal on the Protection of Health Information within the Healthcare System in the US

Healthcare is one of the primary services availed to the society. However, to achieve its delivery, health professionals must have enough access to information concerning the patient. To receive suitable, safe and effective care, a patient has to provide personal data which the healthcare provider must handle with significant confidentiality. Upholding confidentiality is becoming a hard task in healthcare today. The increasing exchange of health information by a large number of people who can get involved in patient care as well as the treatment process of the patient can pose the risk of unauthorized access and exposure of information pertaining a specific patient. The protection of health information calls for high levels of confidentiality and security. Therefore, my choice for this research topic got spurred by the need to understand health information protection as well as its significance today.

In this research proposal, possible topics may arise. One of the issues would be State law concerning health information protection. Undeniably, every state has set laws touching on the medical requirements and ethics. Another topic that would get consideration is the significance of health information protection in the healthcare system today. Additionally, possible research questions include:

· What are various laws that are related to security of health information in the US

· What is the significance of protecting health information?

Several scholarly references will be used to guide in conducting the research. They include:

Ethical Policy Statement: Health Information Confidentiality. (2016). Retrieved from https://www.ache.org/policy/Hiconf.cfm In the article, the significance of confidentiality in health information, as well as the related laws, are discussed.

Prater, V. (2014). Confidentiality, privacy, and security of health information: Balancing interests | the University of Illinois at Chicago. Retrieved from https://healthinformatics.uic.edu/resources/articles/confidentiality-privacy-and-security-of-health-information-balancing-interests/, The article has discussed three concepts utilized in health information protection, and examples of law sources as well as guidelines have been offered concerning confidentiality, privacy, and security of health information.
