MyDelivery: A Collaborative Tool for the 21st Century

Time 04/28/09 03:00PM-04:00PM

Session Abstract

A new collaborative, prototype tool called MyDelivery provides a HIPAA-compliant exchange of electronic medical and health information, including information contained in large files (up to several gigabytes) or large quantities of files (several thousand). Through an email-like user interface, MyDelivery allows two individuals to securely message each other, and optionally attach large files or large numbers of files to each message. Employing client-server architecture, the communication doubly encrypts all data by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) via HTTPS protocols, allowing it to pass through most firewalls, and it also uses the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) for end-to-end encryption of all information communicated between two clients. Because the tool generates and manages security certificates invisibly to the user, it is easy to use, and it should enable biomedical and information science researchers, librarians, physicians, patients, and others to easily exchange information, regardless of the size or quantities of the electronic files in which it resides. This work also supports telemedicine, which is an important element of the Presidential initiative to improve healthcare through efficient, safe, and secure access to electronic medical records.
