Hawk is a small condo model high performance cluster for use with Research Health Information (RHI), or Research Identifiable Data.

Individually identifiable health information that is used in research but that are not associated with or derived from a healthcare service event is considered research health information (RHI), or research identifiable data. Additionally, data that were previously considered protected health information (PHI) that are obtained pursuant to a HIPAA authorization or IRB waiver of HIPAA authorization are also considered RHI. Even though it is not PHI, you should still separate individual identifiable data elements from non-identifiable data elements whenever it is feasible. Furthermore, user access control should be implemented to provide the minimum necessary access to RHI and RHI must only be processed, stored, and transferred via approved methods.
