To the Editor.—  The American Medical Record Association appreciated Ms Ziporyn's article discussing the confidentiality of computerized health records.1The American Medical Record Association has traditionally been a champion of confidentiality of health records, and in a recent position statement, "Confidentiality and Security of Secondary Health Records," we addressed the issue of ensuring secure computerized health information. A copy of this statement, which offers methods to ensure confidentiality and security, is available on request.
