Privacy and security of cardiovascular implantable electronic devices: Applying a contextual integrity analysis

Abstract

Technological advancements in the treatment of heart patients with cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) and remote monitoring systems (RMSs) are fundamentally changing the way physicians and patients relate to electronically shared personal health information. This paper applies a contextual integrity analysis using a nine-step decision heuristic to determine if and how new information flows present potential privacy risks. This analysis finds that the wireless transfer of patient health information from CIED to RMS poses safety and privacy threats to patients and violates contextual integrity. Suggestions for changes to HIPAA regulations and medical device design protocols are presented.
