▪ privacy-enhanced decision support methods that present doctors with the most relevant details of an emergency medical situation while preserving patient privacy (Mark Chignell and his colleagues’ “Nonconfidential Patient Types in Emergency Clinical Decision Support”);
▪ the tension between vendor confidentiality, anonymity in medical records, and the data needed for epidemiology (Michael Lesk's “Electronic Medical Records: Confidentiality, Care, and Epidemiology”);
▪ multidisciplinary, workshop-based approaches to securing information technology in healthcare (Denise Anthony and her colleagues’ “Securing Information Technology in Healthcare”);
▪ reputation systems using mobile devices to allow patients safe remote interaction with their medical records (Ginés Dólera Tormo and his colleagues’ “Identity Management: In Privacy We Trust. Bridging the Trust Gap in eHealth Environments”); and
▪ how the design of electronic health record systems affects patient privacy, the physician-patient relationship, and who should control patient information (Deborah C. Peel and Deven McGraw's Point/Counterpoint discussion).
