Security Roundtable for Cloud

Clinical Natural Language Processing

May 22

Seattle, WA

(Sunday evening through Tuesday noon)



This roundtable brings together nationally
-
recognized experts in information security, key
stakeholders from
health care and research institutions, and representatives of leading cloud service
providers to identify legal, regulatory, technical and governance prerequisites for secure, regulatory
-
compliant processing of patient clinical information in externally
-
ho
sted computing environments ("the
cloud").


A series of expert presentations and coordinated focused discussions will identify salient issues,
challenges, prerequisites and approaches necessary for robust, locally
-
tailored solutions. Results
from these dis
cussions will be compiled into a road map document describing processes and
strategies institutions can employ to determine whether and to what extent they can leverage cloud
-
based technologies in local research and evaluation efforts.


Questions address
ed

in roundtable sessions include:



Who are the institutional stakeholders and what are their roles and responsibilities?



What are the novel security risks in the cloud and how can they be assessed?



What are the relative advantages and disadvantages of public

and private clouds?



What is the role of de
-
identification in mitigating risk?



What technical, operational and policy challenges are unique to cloud computing?



What are the milestones in an institutional road map for exploring cloud computing?

Motivating
use cases include state
-
of
-
the
-
art natural language
processing systems deployed in private or public clouds, tightly
integrated with the local institution’s traditional security
infrastructure for its exclusive, private use in extracting
information from p
atient clinical text.


Roundtable sessions and the resulting road map will be tailored
to an audience that includes research institutions and health
care organizations interested in exploring the possibility of using
cloud
-
based computing technologies to e
nhance the quantity
and quality of information available for clinical research,
evaluation, and patient care.
