It may be argued that medical information systems are subject to the same type of threats
and compromises that plague general information systems, and that it does not require special
attention from a research viewpoint. The firsthand experience of experts in information security
and assurance who studied or worked with health applications has been of a different sort: While
general principles of security still apply in the medical information field, a number of unique
characteristics of the health care business environment suggest a more tailored approach. In
this paper we describe some recent results of an on-going research on medical information
privacy carried out at the Johns Hopkins University under the support of the National Science
Foundation (NSF).
