Data Security and Compliance

In order to facilitate collaboration with external institutions, BMI has built a dedicated research network with separate segments for data storage, data management systems, and applications

BMI closely collaborates with Cincinnati Children’s IS department as well as legal and compliance departments to provide an environment compliant with local and federal requirements, including HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), FISMA (the Federal Information Security Management Act), and 21 CFR Part 11 (U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulations on electronic records and electronic signatures).

BMI provides consultations for faculty and staff on best IT practices and helps facilitate data use agreements with partner institutions for a wide range of projects. We have developed annual System Security Plans as required by a number of regulations as well as data use agreements
