Partnerships Asia Session Spotlight: EHRs, Confidentiality, Data Security & Protection of Patient’s Records

This past October, the Vietnam Health Ministry invested VND100 billion (US$4.7 million) on one of their biggest initiatives to date - investing in electronic health records. In this initiative, 40 of the biggest hospitals in the nation will participate in the digitization of the health records in their country. While there are many challenges facing this effort, Asia Pacific Future Gov shares that there are many factors working in the favor of kicking off electronic health records in the country: infrastructure, technology-savvy population, and cheap internet costs provide strong support to the initiative.

Vietnam is not the only country in Asia facing this challenge.  At the Partnerships in Clinical Trials Asia conference, we bring the professionals in the region dealing with the same issues to one place to form a three day community of networking and discussion around topics facing clinical trials professionals in the region.  Coming this September, among other challenges facing the Asia Pacific region in clinical trials, we'll be looking at the challenges and implementation of electronic health records and patient safety in Asia.  Our featured session of the day is EHRs, Confidentiality, Data Security, & Protection of Patient's Records.
