The health care delivery system has an ethical responsibility to protect patient information and data as it relates to the process of patient care. Patients are also protected regarding their decisions to divulge personal medical information to additional parties and should always feel confident sharing their medical information with their caregiver as the maintenance and security of that information is protected by law. Pozgar (2023) states, “the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) points out that the patient has the right to confidentiality of his or her clinical records” (p. 1).
