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

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) implemented the Electronic Health Records (eHR) System 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 personally identifiable information and health information about ICE detainees, ICE conducted this privacy impact assessment to assess the privacy issues associated with the collection, maintenance, and use of this information.
