The National Science Foundation has awarded a $4 million grant to Dartmouth College to lead the five-year Trustworthy Health and Wellness initiative that aims to improve the security of patient information when exchanged or shared wirelessly using mobile devices. "Our research is motivated by the rapid deployment of mobile and cloud information technologies in health care, both in clinical settings and at home. We aim to help these technologies reach their full potential by ensuring they can protect the integrity of medical data and the privacy of patient information," said lead investigator David Kotz.
