Sat May 13 12:43:49 EDT 2017

Dear Colleagues,

Please consider submitting a manuscript to the HICSS 2018 minitrack on Security and Privacy Challenges in Healthcare. Manuscript submissions begin on April 1, 2017 and close on June 15. Following is a description of the minitrack:

Digitizing healthcare services can provide many new benefits and opportunities. However, it can also introduce new research challenges in terms of protecting the security and privacy security of patient data and electronic health records. Furthermore, as security incidents and breaches continue to impact healthcare providers and organizations, patient information continues to be at risk and such organizations are under pressure to enhance the credibility and reliability of the health facilities that they provide.

The Security and Privacy Challenges in Healthcare mini-track encourages research in emerging problems and opportunities for security and privacy in healthcare. Further, it addresses new approaches and strategies to improve the capabilities for protecting healthcare information. Research may focus on specific areas related to themes and issues, tools and techniques, Mobile Health (mHealth) security and privacy, securing electronic health records, mitigating risks, incident response, technical and legal issues related to the security and privacy of patient healthcare data, including data obtained through the Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud computing.

Topics covered by the mini-track include, but are not limited to:

  *   Security and privacy challenges associated with Electronic Health Records (EHR)
  *   Privacy concerns for patients’ data
  *   Security and privacy risks associated with technologies such as cloud computing and the Internet of Things (IoT) for healthcare
  *   Mobile Health (mHealth) security and privacy
  *   Mitigating risks in healthcare Information Technology
  *   Incident response
  *   Lessons learned from recent healthcare security breaches
  *   EHR vendor selection and management with a focus on security and privacy
  *   Legal issues and regulations
  *   Training programs
  *   Tools, techniques, and algorithms for protecting patients’ data
  *   Healthcare infrastructure protection
  *   Theoretical foundations of security and privacy for healthcare

If you have any questions or comments, do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you and looking forward to seeing you in Hawaii!
