The development of current technological advances encourages healthcare and health law practitioners to have openness and understanding in the management and storage of health data, as well as collaborating with related disciplines to anticipate the misuse and leakage of health data that has a detrimental impact on patients. The Faculty of Law and Communication at the Soegijapranata Catholic University (Unika Soegijapranata), through the Master of Health Law Program, intends to host the 3rd International Conference on Health Law with the theme ‘Digital Healthcare Transformation: Electronic Medical Record and Personal Data Protection’. This theme is carried by upholding the spirit of being critical, innovative, and creative in responding to the implementation of health services that continues to develop, especially in terms of the preparation and storage of medical records, which have transformed conventional forms into digital ones that are more concise, neat, practical, and paperless. On the other hand, the security of health data from the danger of hacking by irresponsible parties is also a concern for many health practitioners.

Legal certainty plays an integral part in implementing digital health service transformation. It is an important concern of health law as an effort to realize legal protection for health workers and patients. Regulation of medical records in Indonesia, set in Ministry of Health Regulation No. 269/MENKES/Per/III/2008 on Medical Records. In September 2022, the regulation was updated by the Ministry of Health Regulation No. 24 of 2022, emphasizing electronic medical records implementation. Electronic medical records systems are intended to administer medical records by meeting data and information security principles, including integrity and availability. The government’s regulation in Indonesia has also supported electronic medical records by adjusting the development of legal needs in Indonesia.

The main legal issues related to medical records and health information contained at least 3 things: compilation, maintenance, and retention; use and disclosure of health information; and the use of medical records in judicial processes. In the end, the implementation of electronic medical records has its challenges that come not only from the legal aspect but also from the readiness of the human resources, including the ability, consistency, and commitment to implementation, readiness, and availability of infrastructure, and completeness of the digital system. This conference will be held to answer various questions and doubts regarding the view of health law on the change from conventional medical records to electronic medical records, cyber security, and digital health care data protection.
