￼CHIME and WEDI Caution Consumers Against Health Information Loss
June 24, 2022
A new resource developed by the two groups can be customized to help patients guard their data on third-party health sites.
With third-party applications gaining more access to patients' health information, the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) and the Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange (WEDI) have announced the launch of the “THINK BEFORE YOU CLICK” campaign.
The organizations are endorsing a seamless flow of data to these applications to enhance access and improve better health outcomes. Consumers must mitigate their risk, however, and the groups are offering five-step checklist designed to educate and empower consumers to take the necessary precautions before they transmit their health information to third-party apps.
