PHI-Compliant Storage


Research Computing File Share (RC-FS) is our solution for data that are high volume, sensitive, or contain Protected Health Information (PHI).  Boston Children's Hospital Research Computing subsidizes this resource to make it available to as many research labs as possible. If your research requires PHI to be stored in a different manner than described above you can apply for an exception through the Special Data Request process.  Requests are reviewed by a panel from ISD, IRB, OGC, Research Compliance and any other applicable BCH offices.
