A Register is a collection of information, such as hospital’s admission/discharge register. A registry is a structured system for collecting and maintaining information about a defined population so that analyses and reviews can be performed. A register is used to verify information, such as for adoption, birth, death, divorce, and marriage. A registry is used to collect data and perform statistical analysis and study, such as a cure for cancer.

If I had the authority to put a policy on the availability of medical information I would just make sure that the patients information is upheld. Some patients who participate in trials for new drugs do not want others to know that they are doing this.
