eHealth- Building Trust in a Connected Society

Digital transformation has led to innovations such as telemedicine and remote patient monitoring. This has steered healthcare providers to rethink their approach to ensuring that sharing of patient data is met with adequate connected platform and device security.

While innovators and providers of healthcare give a dedicated service to curing disease and saving lives, one of the greatest vulnerabilities in healthcare is data security and data privacy- and this remains susceptible to cyber attack.

eHealth is a broad term covering a great deal of territory and can range from regional systems where patients can access basic online data through to national schemes such as ePrescription services. At times, services extend to cross border eHealth information sharing. An emerging segment are the eHealth-devices which directly monitor and act on the patient and which analyze data individually and comparatively across bigger user groups.

As data is shared and managed by a variety of parties including employees; data encryption, authentication and access control are key attributes across the eHealth infrastructure with a requirement to ensure that patient data is recorded, processed and passed on across devices, platforms and processes in compliance with legal and user consent.

Legal requirements of long-term data-storage e.g., of patient data, mandate for a future proof and crypto-agile infrastructure, ensuring data protection beyond the emergence of quantum computing.
