Abstract

Secondary uses of medical data are not directly related to the delivery of healthcare to an individual and the provision of privacy within this context is increasingly challenging. This paper integrates theoretical and empirical research regarding privacy and proposes a privacy framework to support secondary use of medical data. Theoretical aspects consider two contemporary privacy theories and empirical aspects incorporate consumer survey results to propose a privacy framework for secondary use of medical data. This research is part of a larger study undertaken within the post-positivist and interpretive paradigms utilizing mixed methods. The proposed privacy framework engages healthcare consumers in decision making regarding the secondary use of their data.
