1 NISTs Role in Securing Health Information AMA-IEEE Medical Technology Conference on Individualized Healthcare Kevin Stine, Information Security Specialist Computer Security Division Information Technology Laboratory National Institute of Standards and Technology March 22, 2010

2 NISTs Mission To promote U.S. innovation and industrial competitiveness by advancing measurement science, standards, and technology … 2 Credit: NIST Credit: R. Rathe … in ways that enhance economic security and improve our quality of life.

3 Computer Security Divisions Mission A division with the Information Technology Lab, CSD provides standards and technology to protect information systems against threats to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information and services … 3 … in order to build trust and confidence in Information Technology (IT) systems

4 Agenda 4

5 Meaningful Use, Standards, and Certifications (Oh My) Meaningful Use (NPRM) Adopt and meaningfully use certified electronic health record (EHR) technology Stage 1(beginning in 2011): Ensure adequate privacy and security protections for personal health information. Standards and Certification (IFR) Represents the first step in an incremental approach to adopting standards, implementation specifications, and certification criteria to enhance the interoperability, functionality, utility, and security of health information technology and to support its meaningful use. Standards for HIT to protect Electronic Health Info (IFR, § ) Encryption and decryption of EHI, Record actions related to EHI, Verification that electronic health information has not been altered in transit, Cross- enterprise authentication Certification Criteria (IFR, § ) Access Control, Audit Log, Integrity, Authentication, Encryption
