Ensuring patient privacy and improving patient care quality are two of the most significant challenges faced by healthcare systems around the world. This paper describes the importance and challenges of effective multidisciplinary team treatment and the sharing of patient healthcare records in healthcare delivery. At present, electronic health records are used to create, manage and share patient healthcare information efficiently and effectively. The security and privacy concerns with sharing and the proper use of protected health information need to be highlighted. Additionally, an access control solution is presented, which is suitable for collaborative healthcare systems to address concerns with information sharing and information access. In this access control model, the multidisciplinary team is classified based on Belbin’s team role theory to ensure that access rights are adapted dynamically to the actual needs of healthcare professionals and to guarantee confidentiality as well as protect the privacy of sensitive patient information.
