The Role of Security in Clinical Informatics

Matt Curtin will discuss the role of security in clinical informatics at the fall conference of the Central and Southern Ohio Chapter of HIMSS.

Interhack founder Matt Curtin will present at the annual conference of the Central and Southern Ohio Chapter of HIMSS with a discussion of the role of information security in clinical informatics.


When thinking of security, many people think immediately of technologies like firewalls and cryptography. In fact, security is a property ascribed to information when it is well-managed. We will discuss the fundamental principles of information security and show how these support the objectives of clinical informatics. Going a step further, we will demonstrate how the goals of clinical informatics cannot be met without security.
