  • Markle Foundation Task Force Says FBI Should Not Be Lead Agency For Domestic Information to Prevent Terrorism | Markle | Advancing America's Future
    police officer hearing a complaint from a landlord an airport official who hears about a plane a pilot trainee left on a runway an FBI agent puzzled by an odd flight school student in Arizona or an emergency room resident treating a strange ailment The report argues that because of the nature of new terrorist threats it is necessary to create a more horizontal cooperative and fluid process for intelligence collection sharing and analysis The U S has to develop a sophisticated and integrated information network to protect Americans from attacks at home said Philip Zelikow Executive Director of The Task Force which includes experts who served in the Carter Reagan Bush and Clinton administrations as well as those from the private sector and the academy We need a new national strategy that is networked and transforms intelligence institutions uses guidelines to balance privacy with security and uses the best practices from the private sector The Task Force composed of leading experts in national security information technology and legal and privacy issues argues that the Department of Justice and its FBI should be the lead agencies for law enforcement exercising the power to investigate crimes charge people with crimes and prepare cases for trial and appeal The report argues that DHS should be the lead agency shaping domestic information to inform policymakers and set broad priorities for collecting information The Task Force notes that criminal investigation and counterintelligence often overlaps with intelligence work and that overlap will enhance our knowledge But it concludes that the case for a fundamental separation of law enforcement from the responsibility of providing information to policymakers is strong The report argues that those running criminal investigations and who hold the arrest power the greatest power to deprive someone of his or her liberties should not be the same people who will be seeking all kinds of domestic information from local officials and business firms throughout the nation and using that information in databases Nor should the intelligence analysts be the people who will be preparing cases prosecutors must present in court the very problem recently cited by the federal court that oversees FBI foreign intelligence surveillance wiretaps Under the scenario outlined in the report the FBI would continue to have responsibility for managing clandestine collection operations inside the United States like FISA wiretaps or the recruitment of undercover agents under the supervision of the Attorney General The Task Force report entitled Protecting America s Freedom in the Information Age offers specific recommendations on how the government can develop information collection and analysis capabilities while also protecting the civil liberties of our citizens The Task Force examined highly successful regional initiatives from around the county for example in Utah Texas and California where local and state homeland security efforts provide models for a national system According to the report the federal government is planning to spend 40 billion annually to protect the homeland much of which will be used for new information technologies Yet not enough

  • Markle Foundation Launches Initiative to Promote Adoption of Key Clinical Health Information Standards | Markle | Advancing America's Future
    The Foundation will also provide initial funding of 2 million There is a critical need to move healthcare into the information age said Zoë Baird president of the Markle Foundation The U S healthcare system has not taken full advantage of the information technologies that have revolutionized other industries With Connecting for Health we intend to be a catalyst for improving healthcare by bringing sectors together to implement some key standards while protecting patients privacy and security Because of the fragmented way that health information is currently collected it is often unavailable when needed most The adoption of a core set of electronic information standards is expected to improve clinical decision making reduce medical errors accelerate research on patient outcomes and increase the effectiveness of public health efforts The work of Connecting for Health will be an important first step toward ultimately enabling patients to gain access to secure medical information in order to become more informed partners in their own care While we recognize that others have struggled with these issues we believe that the time is right for a broad based collaborative effort focusing on practical solutions said Carol Diamond MD MPH managing director of the Markle Foundation s Healthcare Program and chair of Connecting for Health Connecting for Health is designed to build on the good work that has already been done and engage key stakeholders in moving forward together Steering Committee of Industry Leaders Connecting for Health s Steering Committee includes a number of recognized progressive leaders in healthcare As chair of the Steering Group Dr Diamond will be joined by three respected executive vice chairs John R Lumpkin MD MPH director Illinois Department of Public Health and Chair National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics Herbert Pardes MD president and CEO NewYork Presbyterian Hospital Russell J Ricci MD general manager IBM Global Healthcare Industry The Collaborative will be organized into three working groups focusing on data standardization privacy and security and personal health Dr Ricci is also board chair of the eHealth Initiative a non profit organization whose mission is to improve the quality safety and cost effectiveness of health care through information technology He said we will build upon the eHealth Initiative s public private collaboration for public health and will work together to achieve what we know is a vital necessity an interoperable health care system With flexible open data standards we can make significant progress in reducing medical errors improving patient care and holding the line on escalating healthcare costs The State of Healthcare Information Technology Despite the sophistication of the U S healthcare system medical information is often collected and reported in a piecemeal fashion For example hospitals and physicians are often unable to obtain usable information that will help in applying research breakthroughs or avoiding preventable medical mistakes Physicians may find themselves providing patient care without always knowing what has been done previously for a patient and by whom The lack of standardization means that current information systems are often
