Safeguarding patient records has always been a major concern for hospitals, but it has taken on added importance with increasing computerization that makes it easier for employees to browse medical charts, usually to check on the condition of a fellow worker, friend, or neighbor. In an effort to make records more secure, two hospitals--the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics, Madison, and Beth Israel-Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, MA--have included an audit trail in their computer security systems to let them know who is accessing them. Such methods to safeguard electronic records and better protect patients' privacy were strongly recommended in March 1997 by a panel of the National Research Council, an arm of the National Academy of Sciences. In this report, we'll present details of how these hospitals are proceeding.
