Private and Sensitive Data Management
As closer ties are formed between UITS and entities that generate and use sensitive data, there is a need for broader coordination among UITS divisions. Science Community Tools coordinated the initial implementation of HIPAA-aligned systems that served researchers at the IU School of Medicine working with electronic protected health information, and became one of the first academic high-performance computing centers to do so. Activities that require protection of sensitive data are now expanding to other sensitive data, such as census data, and to other applications such as clinical care and course management. This activity is now being expanded across UITS as a coordinated approach for the protection of sensitive data for research, teaching, and administrative uses.
