Notes from 10/21/11 Meeting

Hi, and welcome to the Patterson Net blog!  This blog is a work in progress, so please be patient while we work on the infrastructure and content.

Disclaimer:  Following are my notes from the project team meeting held on Friday, 10/21/11.  Because of a scheduling problem, Robert Madel from Valley Medical Center was unable to join the discussion.  But we decided to go ahead and meet without Robert.  As a result, all decisions are provisional, pending Robert’s input and guidance. Robert will be scheduling another meeting of this group, sometime in the near future.

The Server is in place now at VMC, can be used as a hub for storing video and hosting of other groupware such as blog, web, discussion groups and secure instant messaging (IM).

Want to use non institution computers and non-institutional networks

Protected patient information: Patients can disclose whatever she/he wants, but does that absolve us of HIPPA responsibility?

Idea: Get signed disclosure for participants in advance regarding what’s going to happen with their possibly protected data.
Need clarification about what is the scope of HIPPA, does it apply to personally owned computers

PVA (Paralysed Veterans of America) can own the system, or whatever foundation is present at each hospital.
