Electronic healthcare records promise to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of healthcare systems, but also introduce new risks to the security and privacy of healthcare information. In this paper, we outline how digital rights management can be used to protect health information transmitted throughout a distributed healthcare system. Our proposal allows for information to be disclosed on a need-to-know basis as defined by workflows, and in line with the wishes of patients.
