Detecting Inappropriate Access to Personal Health Information
“While PHIPA has served Ontarians well over the last decade, rapid changes in technology and communications are demanding that we keep pace. With the growing use of electronic health records, the province needs a legislative framework that addresses the rights of individuals and the duties and obligations of health care providers in an electronic environment. Modernizing PHIPA will pave the way for a smooth and seamless transition toward 21st century health care while protecting our privacy.” – Brian Beamish, Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario

Using Machine Learning Healthcare to detect healthcare snoopers
Talk By Dr. Daniel Fabbri
Open Electronic Medical Record (EMR) access environments trade clinician efficiency for patient privacy. Monitoring EMR accesses for inappropriate use is challenging due to access volumes and hospital dynamics. This talk presents the Explanation-Based Auditing System, which uses machine learning to quickly identify suspicious accesses, improving compliance officer efficiency and patient privacy.
PhD. Assistant Professor of Biomedical Informatics and Computer Science, Vanderbilt University,
Maize AnalyticsDaniel Fabbri, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Informatics in the School of Medicine at Vanderbilt University. He is also an Assistant Professor of Computer Science in the School of Engineering. His research focuses on database systems and machine learning applied to electronic medical records and clinical data. He developed the Explanation-Based Auditing System, which uses data mining techniques to help hospital compliance officers monitor accesses to electronic medical records in order to identify inappropriate use. He received a National Science Foundation Innovation Corps award to commercialize this auditing technology at Maize Analytics. Beyond research, he has participated in the A World In Motion program, which teaches elementary and middle school children physics through weekly interactive experiments such as building toy cars powered by balloons. He received his doctorate in computer science from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and a bachelor of science in computer science and engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles. Prior to joining Vanderbilt, he interned at Google, Microsoft Research, Goldman Sachs, Lockheed Martin and Yahoo.
