Sharing Patient Disease Data With Privacy Preservation, Xiaoping Liu, Xiao-Bai Li, Luvai Motiwalla, Wenjun Li, Hua Zheng, Patricia Franklin

Wenjun Li

When patient data are shared for studying a specific disease, a privacy disclosure occurs as long as an individual is known to be in the shared data. Individuals in such specific disease data are thus subject to higher disclosure risk than those in datasets with different diseases. This problem has been overlooked in privacy research and practice. In this study, we analyze disclosure risks for this problem and identify appropriate risk measures. An efficient algorithm is developed for anonymizing the data. An experimental study is conducted to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach.

Since the 1990’s, the Veteran’s Health Administration (VHA) has implemented a system of primary care that has been considered some of the best care that can be offered (Klein, 2011). The Patient Center Medical Home (PCMH) Model, also called “Patient Aligned Care Team” (PACT) in the VHA, has been coordinating and integrating services which ensure optimal health outcomes at an acceptable value (Bidassie, Davies, Stark, & Boushon, 2014).

PACT was created in 2010, building on 20 years of the VHA transforming from a loosely based system of inpatient services to a provider of outpatient primary care for veterans. From ...

Information Technology Proposal For The Town Of Spencer, Vijay Basava, Corey Kenyon, Mahdi Soltani

School of Professional Studies

The Town of Spencer came to us looking for a plan to build and maintain their own personal fiber network for connection between departments and to improve data security for important information. After assessing the existing landscape and determining the various paths forward, we created network diagrams and plans for the movement forward of this project.

After assessing a variety of plans, we found that a full single-mode fiber network would be the best system for the implementation in Spencer. While it was the highest cost, it also scored the highest in our assessment.

The Evolution Of Financial Instruments And The Legal Protection Against Counterfeiting: A Look At Coin, Paper, And Virtual Currencies, Ralph E. Mckinney, Lawrence P. Shao, Dale H. Shao, Duane C. Rosenblieb Jr.

Ralph E. McKinney

This essay discusses the requirements for the long-term acceptance of virtual currency as a financial medium of exchange by examination of fundamental criteria associated with the historical development of common tender and selected virtual currencies. The relatively recent appearance of Internet-based transactions have necessitated developing virtual forms of payment such as virtual currencies. According to the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (“FinCEN”) of the United States Treasury,5 virtual currencies are subject to regulation if that virtual currency has a substitutive purpose for facilitating the exchange of goods and services. Although governments can place stipulations on currencies, users of common tender ...

Federal and Foreign (non-U.S.) currencies are explicitly examined. Some digital currencies are not regulated or authorized specifically by a government. Can a currency without formal codification from a government be regulated by a State? As financial transactions have shifted historically from various ...

The Case For Ubuntu Linux Operating System Performance And Usability For Use In Higher Education In A Virtualized Environment, Maurice Dawson, Brittany DeWalt, Simon Cleveland 2016 University of Missouri-St. Louis

The Case For Ubuntu Linux Operating System Performance And Usability For Use In Higher Education In A Virtualized Environment, Maurice Dawson, Brittany Dewalt, Simon Cleveland

Maurice Dawson

The use of Linux based Operating Systems (OS) in the classroom is increasing, but there is little research to address usability differences between Windows and Linux based OSs. Moreover, studies related to the ability for students to navigate effectively between Ubuntu 14.04 Long Term Support (LTS) and Windows 8 OSs are scant. This research aims to bridge the gap between modern Linux and Windows Oss, as the former represents a viable alternative to eliminate licensing costs for educational institutions. Preliminary findings, based on the analysis of the System Usability Scale results from a sample of 14 students, demonstrated that ...

Outside Equity Capital: Before And After The Internet, Richard B. Carter, Howard E. Van Auken, Troy J. Strader

Howard Van Auken

During the 1980s, the US economy began a transition from being industrial/manufacturing based to an entrepreneurial/innovation-driven economy. Currently entrepreneurial firms comprise more than 95% of all firms in the US and over 1 million new small firms are being created each year. They are generating over 85% of new jobs and are responsible for more than one-half of all innovations in the market. This impressive contribution to the US economy is not uniformly spread among the small business sector, but limited primarily to the most rapidly growing entrepreneurial firms -- often referred to as gazelles. The gazelles' appetite for ...


The Business Value Of Cloud Computing In South Africa, Kevin Allan Johnston Prof, Muzaffar Loot Mr, Maxine P. Esterhuyse Miss 2016 University of Cape Town

The Business Value Of Cloud Computing In South Africa, Kevin Allan Johnston Prof, Muzaffar Loot Mr, Maxine P. Esterhuyse Miss

The African Journal of Information Systems

Cloud computing is a prominent trend in the field of Information Technology (IT). Existing research presents the benefits and challenges of cloud computing, however few articles take a corporate approach. Moreover, considering that cloud computing provides numerous benefits, no research has aided the understanding of the business value associated with the technology and the context within which benefits and barriers are realised. The issues in South Africa make it difficult to prove the business value of cloud computing.

The aim of this paper is to provide insight into the business value of cloud computing using qualitative evidence extracted from an ...
