Tasmania to add breaches of confidentiality to open disclosure framework

The Tasmanian Health Service (THS) is updating its open disclosure framework to add breaches of confidentiality through its digital medical record (DMR) to the policy.

Open disclosure usually concerns clinical adverse events that cause harm to a patient, and is covered by a national framework developed by Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care that provides guidance on how to communicate these incidents with patients.
