In our Thesis, we discussed ways to secure personal data inside the Litija Health Centre. Doing this, we first took a look at the laws and acts, that relate to the protection of personal information, patient’s rights and medical documentation.
Our main goal was to find out, whether personal information is being abused in medicine due to the use of the computer programme ISOZ21. Along with this, we analysed the current legislation, that regulates the safety of information in medicine as well as focused much on the Litija Health Centre.
We concluded, that patients are not well informed about the importance of protection of personal data and it’s belonging rights, on the other hand, the medical staff that do felonies, which are related to the topic, are not aware of their faults rather, they are a consequence of either a lack of knowledge or over encumbrance in the work place.
The people in charge of the Litija Health Centre are perfectly aware of this and therefore try to educate regarding this topic. Regardless, in the past years there have been a few documented cases of felonies, but the number was not particularly higher than in most other Health Centres and in some years there were no felonies whatsoever. There doesn’t seem to be any more abuse of information due to the use of the computer programme ISOZ21, but the security and use of personal data requires even more attention and care form those employed.
