Health Information

ITI is working to promote discussion and collaboration on ways to improve the trustworthiness of health information technology. Research in the area includes investigations into improving privacy and security, understanding and addressing social and regulatory concerns, and reducing the risk of errors. Most prominent among ITI’s health information initiatives is the $15 million, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services-funded project on Strategic Healthcare IT Advanced Research Projects on Security (SHARPS), which is developing techniques to reduce security and privacy risks that pose barriers to the meaningful use of health information technology.
