Vanderbilt researchers play major role in new center on electronic health information privacy
Date:5/28/2010

NASHVILLE, Tenn. Slowly but steadily the U.S. health care community is moving into the digital age: shifting their medical records from paper to electronic information systems.

"Our participation in the new SHARPS center reflects the fact that Vanderbilt has become highly visible in the field of health care security and privacy," said Janos Sztipanovits, director of the Institute for Software Integrated Systems (ISIS) at Vanderbilt's School of Engineering. He; Mark Frisse, Accenture professor of Biomedical Informatics at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center; and Edward Schulz, director of Information Technology Integration at VUMC, head up the joint Vanderbilt team. William Stead, the Medical Center's Chief Strategy and Information Officer, will serve as one of the center's two chief scientists.
