Strategic Healthcare IT Advanced Research Projects on Security (SHARPS)

Carl A. Gunter and Dan Roth

SHARPS aims to develop techniques to reduce security and privacy risks that pose barriers to the meaningful use of health information technology. Areas of focus include electronic health records, health information exchanges, and telemedicine. The project includes investigations into policy considerations, service models, and open validation benchmarks. It is a multi-disciplinary and multi-institutional effort that involves cyber-security experts and physicians at a dozen academic institutions advised by a panel of leaders from industry, government, and advocacy groups. Visit the SHARPS website for more information.
