    F062 F062 GDPR, MDR, and what you can do about you medical data (Jovan Stevovic)

    F062 F062 GDPR, MDR, and what you can do about you medical data (Jovan Stevovic)

    In May 2020, Medical Device Regulation goes into effect. Digital health companies providing software intended for medical use will need to comply with new requirements. According to Jovan Stevović, CEO and Co-Founder of Chino.io, companies are much better prepared for MDR than they were for GDPR. In general, medical devices are products or equipment intended for medical use. These include long-term corrective contact lenses, surgical lasers, defibrillators, hearing aids, diagnostic ultrasound machines, hip-joint implants, prosthetic heart valves. There are three classes of medical devices: Class 1, Class 2a and 2b, and Class 3. The classification depends on the intended use. Medical devices class I have the lowest perceived risk for health, those in Class 3 the highest. MDR also defines software which is designed for medicinal purposes, to be a medical device.

    F061 Why do so many data breaches and cyber attacks happen in healthcare? (Chris Bowen)

    F061 Why do so many data breaches and cyber attacks happen in healthcare? (Chris Bowen)

    According to Clearwater cyberIntelligence Institute, one of the key issues in data breaches are user authentication deficiencies. These include password strength requirements, single sign-on controls, and locking accounts after too many failed login attempts are the three primary risks around user authentication - generic password use, physically posting passwords on a workspace, and or unencrypted emailing of credentials over external networks. If the key issue of data security and privacy protection in the past was how to archive data and prevent unauthorized access to archives, the cloud brought a whole new set of challenges. For one thing, security measures required from the personnel are getting increasingly complex. Additionally, while several advances have been made on the technological level of data protection - from different methods of encryption to high hopes stemming from AI and quantum computing, the bad guys are also using these technologies, says Chris Bowen, the Founder of and Chief Privacy & Security Officer of ClearDATA - US based company offering technology and services to assist organizations with their healthcare cloud security needs. We discussed the trends in cybersecurity in healthcare, the future, and what organizations should be mindful of when it comes to healthcare data protection.

    F059 Digital health in Africa 4/4: Doctor's appointments made easy in South Africa (Sheraan Amod)

    F059 Digital health in Africa 4/4: Doctor's appointments made easy in South Africa (Sheraan Amod)

     South Africa is a restless country with Race and ethnicity still causing a lot of tension in the society. On the healthcare side, there are only 0.9 doctors per 1000 people in the country. Out of 59 million people, 9 million people access healthcare through private providers; the rest are in the public system. Soon, however, the system might change with the introduction of National Health Insurance, as you will hear from Sheraan Amod - CEO and founder of South Africa’s largest and fastest growing online healthcare booking platform. Over 100,000 patients and 1,500 providers connect with each other every month via RecoMed. 
    In this discussion, Sheraan talks about his transition into healthcare, shares his views on the development of healthcare in the country and plans for RecoMed, which allows patients to leave positive recommendations about providers on the platform. Negative reviews are sent to providers privately.

    F058 Digital health in Africa 3/4: Bringing Babylon to Rwanda (Patrick Singa Muhoza)

    F058 Digital health in Africa 3/4: Bringing Babylon to Rwanda (Patrick Singa Muhoza)

    In 2016, the UK based company Babylon Health, radically transforming access to primary care in the NHS in the UK, opened a subsidiary in Rwanda. The Rwandan version ob Babylon is called Babyl, and has by today attracted over 2 out of 12 million people in Rwanda. Out of 2 million people, 700.000 consulted Babyls healthcare workers, says Patrick Singa Muhoza, Medical Director at Babylon health Rwanda.
    Rwanda has 12 million people and a severely understaffed healthcare system with 0.1 doctors per 1000 people. According to some locals, the problem is not only a lack of doctors but also poor knowledge, which can cause extreme differences in second opinions, among other things.
