Trustworthy Information Systems for Healthcare

TISH logo

Healthcare in the 21st century requires secure and effective information technology systems to meet two of its most significant challenges: improving the quality of care while also controlling the costs of care.  Yet developing, deploying and using information technology that is both secure and genuinely effective in the complex clinical, organizational and economic environment of healthcare is a significant challenge in its own right. This project's multidisciplinary research will drive innovation in information-sharing technology that ensures security and privacy while addressing the pragmatic needs of patients, clinical staff, and healthcare organizations to deliver efficient, high-quality care.

Research

tishthreadsThe multidisciplinary team of investigators is addressing fundamental challenges in current and emerging areas of information security, as identified by its healthcare partners, through four research threads:

Team

The team includes three computer scientists, two sociologists, a medical clinician, and a business expert, in collaboration with local hospitals. This team brings deep experience with the challenges of authentication in dynamic environments, the use of sensor technology for personal health applications, the sociology of trust and privacy, the organization and delivery of healthcare, and the economics of enterprise security.
