How is digital accessibility for healthcare different from other industries?
For one thing, there is a lot more regulation involved. Due to privacy laws, disclosing information needs to adhere to federal guidelines and security measures. Individuals who want to access or share their medical records will need to do so in a tightly regulated way, and every step needs to be accessible, or the repercussions could be tremendous.
Furthermore, the stakes are much higher than with other industries: access to health information online can literally mean the difference between life and death. It is for these reasons and more that ensuring digital accessibility for healthcare information is imperative.
