Use Case: Share patient data securely and the right way
Share patient data securely and the right way
ShareMedix makes it easy for you to share and transmit sensitive patient data with third parties and patients through automated anonymization.
When using and sharing patient data, strict rules apply with regard to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other regulations. Large amounts of sensitive patient data are stored, used and shared on a daily basis in various medical healthcare facilities such as hospitals, doctors’ practices, pharmacies and other facilities.
Videos, documents and images of patients include personally identifiable information (PII) and should not be easily shared or sent. Unfortunately, sending data – whether to third parties or patients – is often done under insecure conditions, which can also allow unauthorized access by unwanted third parties. CDs, USBs and conventional e-mails are comparable in terms of data protection to a postcard that anyone can read. Here, as well, the act of sending would already constitute a data protection violation.
ShareMedix as a secure platform for sending sensitive patient data with anonymization.
ShareMedix is a platform that makes sending medical data secure and compliant, as the GDPR does not apply to anonymous data, and anonymized personal data can no longer be related to a specific person.
Three practical examples and solutions are presented below:
Situation 1: A physician wants to quickly send patient data anonymously to an external specialist, e.g. a neurologist at a hospital, for a consultation and advice.
Solution: By using ShareMedix, physicians can automatically anonymize and send the identifiable information in medical reports, protocols, doctor’s letters, and in images and videos to third parties.
Situation 2: A patient requests his magnetic resonance images (MRI) from his attending physician because the images handed out and printed are not sufficient for a second opinion. The patient wants the data within two hours.
Solution: With ShareMedix, the doctor automatically anonymizes the MRI and can then securely and easily send them digitally to the patient. In doing so, the relevant information for the treatment is maintained. The personal information is anonymized.
Situation 3: Patient wants to send his data to a specialist worldwide.
Solution: The patient gets access to ShareMedix through his treating physician or specialist.
