Balancing entrepreneurship and business practices for e-collaboration: responsible information sharing in academic research.

Author information

Center for Biomedical Informatics, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA, USA.


Flexible, highly accessible collaboration tools can inherently conflict with controls placed on information sharing by offices charged with privacy protection, compliance, and maintenance of the general business environment. Our implementation of a commercial enterprise wiki within the academic research environment addresses concerns of all involved through the development of a robust user training program, a suite of software customizations that enhance security elements, a robust auditing program, allowance for inter-institutional wiki collaboration, and wiki-specific governance.
