ANP, 22 April 2014: 'Control of medical records with patient'

Patients should be given control over their own medical records. For example, they should decide which healthcare providers can access their patient records at what time.

An internet campaign for medical privacy was launched at the initiative of the Civil Rights Protection Foundation and the Privacy First Foundation. At people can download a letter indicating the extent to which medical data may be shared.

We are not against sharing medical data , said a Privacy First Foundation spokesperson. But now a patient is actually giving carte blanche because he or she has no idea that perhaps a thousand healthcare providers can view their data."
