Medical Information Technology (IT) will play a central role in achieving better quality of health care, in reducing medical errors and in reducing the cost of providing health care. Electronic Health Records (EHR) are at the nascent stage of their implementation. Biomedical data and applications security is an important issue as EHR will be gaining prominence in the coming years. We have done some multidisciplinary work across the Computer Science and Engineering department and the Management Information Sciences (MIS) department in the area of security in health informatics. This includes the development of a new framework for a secure federated patient healthcare system, development of a HIPAA Compliant Medical Data Repository for teaching purposes, data privacy and emergency access authorization for personally controlled online health care data, data integration, management and querying in medical databases, and so on.

A detailed listing of the projects is available here.
