SHARES Presentation at the HL7 Security Working Group

As an international Biomedical Informatics graduate student and a Dentist, the opportunity to present my research at the esteemed HL7 37th Annual Plenary Working Group Meeting felt like a dream come true. My background in dentistry added a unique perspective to my participation and I was deeply honored to share my research findings, focused on the HL7 Information Sensitive Policy value set and its associated categories, a critical aspect concerning patient privacy.

I presented within the Security Working Group, where my research was met with enthusiasm and received positive and constructive feedback. The primary focus of my study was a thorough examination of the HL7 Information Sensitive Policy Value Set Categories and validation with physicians’ perspectives. This applied project, an integral part of my graduate studies, was a collaborative effort guided by Dr. Adela Grando and Dr. Mohammad Jafari. Presenting our findings at the CBCP Working Group meeting marked a substantial achievement, emphasizing the importance of our work.

I want to express my sincere gratitude to Dr. Grando and Dr. Jafari for their invaluable guidance and support throughout this endeavor. Their mentorship has profoundly influenced my academic journey as a passionate graduate student in biomedical informatics.

Attending the various working group meetings was enlightening and enriching. Engaging with professionals from diverse working groups broadened my understanding of healthcare informatics and its constantly evolving landscape. A notable moment was the Dental Data Exchange Meeting, aligning with my background as a dentist. The insights and knowledge shared during this session were highly valuable, and I thoroughly enjoyed interacting with fellow dental professionals in this specialized domain.

Transitioning my focus from dentistry to clinical informatics as a graduate student, I am eager to apply the valuable insights obtained from this event to drive advancements in healthcare informatics. Ultimately, my goal is to enhance patient care and improve outcomes through the integration of these insights.
