Symantec’s “Five Rights” Infographic

Neil Versel posted an interesting infographic on the 5 rights of Data Administration that was created by Symantec.

The info graphic offers the premise and question: “Patient information reaches far beyond the hospital. How can IT assure patients their data is secure and confidential wherever it goes?”

Then, they offer the 5 rights of patient data administration:
1. Right Time
2. Right Route
3. Right Person
4. Right Data
5. Right Use

You can read the infographic for the rest of the details, but it’s an interesting look at what happens to patient data. I’d be interested to hear some HIE people talk about it. Is anything missing?
