Addressing the Privacy Gaps in Healthcare

The projected cost of cyber attacks on U.S. healthcare systems is over $305 billion over the next five years. To address this threat, this team will study a mathematical model of privacy that incorporates the factors related to privacy preferences that have been studied in social sciences. They will validate and refine the model through user studies, and develop an academic curriculum to encapsulate the existing and generated knowledge in an effort to ensure continuity of research among future generations.
