Center for Law, Ethics, and Applied Research in Health Information (CLEAR) researchers are actively pursuing information on a range of topics, including use of big data by genomics researchers. These accomplished investigators publish regularly in leading medical, academic and other scholarly publications. They also generate dozens of reports, presentations and book chapters.
Big Data Use by Genomics and Health Informatics Researchers
The project “Big Data Use by Genomics and Health Informatics Researchers: Identifying the Top Ten Impediments and Solutions” was a systematic review completed by Meslin and team at the IU Center for Bioethics. Some unanticipated but welcome consequences of Meslin’s work on this issue include an invitation to become a member of the Council for Big Data, Ethics, and Society of the Data and Society Institute and a member of the Safe Harbor Team/Regulatory Ethics Working Group of the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health.
Indiana Patient Notification Pilot Study
CLEAR co-director Stan Crosley provided an analysis of the study phase of patient device data flow, including the legal and regulatory aspects of the data movement in both the HIPAA-covered environment and the non-HIPAA environment. Investigators also reviewed and provided assessment of the informed-consent process as it relates to the actual data flow and what might have been anticipated by the patients.
