Waiting to meet someone for lunch today here in Harvard Square at the Out of Town News store and on the rack was the latest, September issue of Scientific American. The September issue is dedicated to security and privacy in a digital world. Though I have not read any of the articles, (will pick up the issue on my way home tonight), based on what I saw in the online version, this looks like a must read issue for the healthcare sector.
The lead story is by Esther Dyson who has been very involved in the healthcare space as of late and discusses privacy and security as it relates to, among other things, digital medical records. There is another article on Genetics and privacy as well.
