Who's watching you, watching them?


For a while the practice had only used a PC on reception but recently they had added laptops to the consulting rooms.

The practice requires t​​he patient to change out of their clothes during the consultation and the practitioner leaves the room while this happens. Fine whilst they had paper notes perhaps but now there's a laptop with a WEBCAM pointing a​​t the patient!

There is a real danger here from possible invasion of privacy.

You may not realise but it's possible to view a webcam remotely.

So to all you medical professionals out there: THIS is just one example of why you need specialist IT advice when you install a computer system.

Anyone can sell you a computer, but a medical specialist can keep you from going to jail, or at the very least not getting questions over privacy issues...
