DHS/ICE/PIA-037 – electronic Health Records System

Electronic Health Records (eHR) System, July 24, 2013 (PDF, 30 pages, 298 KB).  ICE implemented eHR to maintain health records on aliens that ICE detains for violations of U.S. immigration law.  Aliens held in ICE custody in a facility staffed by the ICE Health Services Corps receive medical, dental, and mental health evaluations and treatment depending on the alien’s medical condition and length of stay.  Because the eHR system maintains PII and health information about ICE detainees, ICE conducted this PIA to assess the privacy issues associated with the collection, maintenance, and use of this information.
