Abstract

Clinicians who see adolescents must familiarize themselves with the laws concerning confidential services and with the specific capabilities of their system’s EHRs to protect patient privacy. Providers must also engage EHR vendors and IT professionals to ensure that adolescent privacy needs are met. Training staff and colleagues about how to manage patient information at both routine and emergent encounters will strengthen adolescent access to appropriate care. Clinicians must also seek to educate their adolescent patients and their families about confidentiality.
