Hiding PHI in a screencast
Jan 07, 2014
I'm fairly certain I know the answer to this question, but I thought I would ask anyway.
We are doing a course training people how to use a software application. This software application doesn't have a test system with fake patient information so our only access to the application contains Protected Health Information. Can you see where this question is going yet?
The SMEs are interested in doing a screencast for the course, but we can't publish anything like that with all the PHI it contains. In the past, I've just taken screenshots, blurred or covered up the PHI with a fake name and fake information, and made the application interactive with triggers so I could avoide screencasts,
The question: Is there a way to blur or cover up information in a screencast while the screen we're recording is getting clicked, scrolled through and so on. If so, how would that be done? I'm fairly certain this isn't possible. Storyline has some video editing capabilites, but I think this is probably too much.
Thanks for any help you can provide!
