Explain the managerial responsibilities related to administrative ethical issues:
Health care administrators have a lot of responsibilities to themselves, to the organization they work for, and to the clienteles they help serve. With the increase of information systems one ethical dilemma that seems to be a major problem that health care administrator face is confidentiality of information. Confidential information pertains to facts that are private, secret, or privileged. Confidential information for the administrator in the health care setting is more than just the patient medical information, it boarders to information systems that encompass the organization as a business and a workplace. Managing and organizing confidential information within the health care system is not easy; you have to have knowledge, ethical awareness, and good decision-making skill. In order to avoid a "cynical view" by administrators of the importance of ethically managing confidential information, increased education and discussion of these issues need to take place. Having these discussions, retrospective analysis, and ethics education, innovative ways to effectively answer difficult questions concerning confidentiality information will emerge.

To receive this information of a private nature carries with it a fiduciary obligation to respect confidentiality and to take due care not to disclose or release information outside the course of that necessary within the confines of the business to attempt to achieve something.
Letting go of information outside the extent of what is really needed for sound business purposes may hold with it consequences of personal and business liability. Well-intentioned acts, like unwarranted acts, may create liability for the administrator individually and for the organization if there was a legal duty to maintain confidentiality and the breach of confidentiality caused harm to another. Personal information should be handled with a high level of professionalism and quality. Any release of personal information should be reasonable and limited to specific uses by appropriate parties. Policies and procedures should be in place to ensure confidential information is protected. Suitable learning programs should be in place so that members of the health care organization...
