MMBA 6540: Innovation and Technology Part I: Ethics and Technology Part II: Forward Thinking and Analysis Part III: Innovation and You Name: Tammy Wortherley Response Part I: Ethics and Technology Date Completed: August 19, 2010 Consider your own personal business ethics in light of the byproducts of technological innovation—whether they are physical products or more intangible products such as the storage and accessibility of personal data. Describe the ways in which you will assess and determine your own ethical guidelines as you encounter new technological frontiers and ways in which you can help to impact the ethics of those who surround you. Technology and ethics should be a synonymous. When managing others and teaching them the way of the company or organization, it will be key to ensure that each and every employee handle proprietary data with the upmost care and respect. In the healthcare sector, one deals with a great deal of personal medical records. HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability ACT) was put into force in April 1996. This law protects individuals rights and personal records. “The HIPAA Privacy Rule regulates the use and disclosure of certain information held by "covered entities" (generally, health care clearinghouses, employer sponsored health plans, health insurers, and medical service providers that engage in certain transactions” (Wikipedia, HIPPA, 2010). When managing patient care, one must use the most care to protect his or her patient records. Additionally, as an employee of a temporary staffing company, the applicant/employee must give copies of his or her own medical records to qualify for employment. This information must not be compromised in any way. One current ethical issue, is the face that one appellate court judge deemed it appropriate for the FBI to listen to OnStar customer’s conversations, as long as the vehicle owner “can still make outbound 911 emergency calls”. (Zittran, 2009).
