1. The legal and ethical concerns can lead to exposed of personal information and leaked or lost. An article stated that recorded documents have a high risk of leakage and loss because storage is only in the cupboard (Yunus, et. all., 2023). Concerns can be the fear of confidentiality and anxiety of getting ttheir things leaked. As a counselor my concerns would be how to write them and keep them safe. If i were to use a secure notebook, there are still concerns about leaving it somewhere or someone taking ir from my possession. If I were a client i would be really questionable about what I share and what I would want my counselor to advise how he/she would keep the confidentiality safe.
Which would you prefer? Electronic or writtent documentation?
2. When I think of electronic medical records, the first thing that comes to mind is risk. This means the risk of being hacked and sold or stolen. When handling electronic files, you must consider all the things that can go wrong, along with the benefits. Most, if not all, files are electronic mainly because of laws and rules. Some have to be so certain people have access to them. However, legally, all files being on record could help you if something ever comes up. While handwritten notes could be just for personal use if there was ever something in there about a patient that needed to be known, someone who needs that information may not be able to know that. I believe that as a patient, the biggest worry would be others seeing the confidential things you've told your doctor.
