Timothy Stablein, Ph.D.


ISTS Postdoctoral Fellow - Now at Union College:
Dartmouth College, Department of Sociology

University of Connecticut, Ph.D., 2009
University of Massachusetts, Boston, M.A., 2000
Bridgewater State College, B.S., 1998

As a post-doctoral fellow at ISTS, I explore the role technology plays in shaping views about health information privacy, health information exchanges and health disparities among stigmatized groups. My fellowship is provided through a multidisciplinary grant funded by the National Science Foundation's Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering, Trustworthy Computing Program (TISH). I am also funded through a Department of Health and Human Services research grant, Strategic Healthcare IT Advanced Research Projects on Security (SHARPS). At ISTS, I have participated as a researcher and methods specialist on a number of interdisciplinary research projects (see below). Of particular note, Dr. Denise Anthony and I have undertaken a large qualitative, in-depth interview project, which explores privacy perceptions and the role that electronic health records play among select groups within hospital settings (doctors, nurses, administrators, patients). For this study, we have collected over 150 interviews across different hospitals and health care organizations. Currently, we are analyzing patient interview data to explore perceptions of privacy among differently-aged stigmatized groups to understand the role that health information technology plays in health information disclosure practices.

In addition to collecting and analyzing these qualitative data, I am also currently applying for support through an NIH R03 grant (PAR-08-268) to study how electronic health records and privacy perceptions shape pediatrician-adolescent patient interactions.
