Notes: 
<p>Review, Network Fall 1998: Ensuring Privacy and Confidentiality on Canada's Health Iway deals with issues of access, ownership, and control of health information in the face of new powerful information systems. The document, produced from a workshop held in Newfoundland last year, explores how the linking of these new information systems through advanced networks adds a new layer of complexity to the issues of privacy, confidentiality and security. It gives useful protocols and guidelines, moving forward the discussion on the health information super-highway.</p>
