Privacy Privacy
The Privacy Office is led by Hilary Cox, JD, CIPP/US, Executive Director University and Research Policy.  She has a dual privacy role, the Privacy Officer for OVPRS and the Data Protection Officer for the Academy.  In both roles, she oversees existing privacy compliance functions and the Data Broker Services team


The Privacy Office processes all agreements related to data sharing for research and operational purposes and provides guidance related to privacy provisions in foreign clinical trials. Any potential privacy incidents related to research studies are routed to and analyzed by Privacy to determine whether incidents are reportable and to ensure proper mitigation and remediation of any incidents.  Privacy also is a resource for the research community, providing guidance and education on study-related questions.

The mission of Data Broker Services is to provide a centralized, standardized review of all requests for clinical data at UMSOM/UHealth.
