EHiN Sikkerhet & personvern: Nordisk sikkerhet / Nordic security (English)

Wednesday November 1, 2017 13:00 - 14:15 Room 5

Lecturers: Konstantin Hyppönen, Maria Jakobsen, Pia Jespersen
Moderator: Aasta Margrethe Hetland

The new dataprotection regulation, the GDPR, has made Nordic and European collaboration and knowledge sharing even more important than before.  In this session we want to give the floor to our Nordic colleagues and let them tell us how their country is working with information security and data protection and  what challenges and possibilities lies ahead.

Our presenters from Denmark, Sweden and Finland come from different areas and backgrounds within the health and care sector and will each give us their perspective.

- Maria Jakobsen (Sverige)
«Så stärker vi den personliga integriteten inom vård och omsorg”

- Konstantin Hyppônen (Finland)

Health data sharing in Finland, implications of GDPR and services for citizens.

The national infrastructure for health data sharing in Finland has been available since 2012, and the ePrescription service since 2010. Although originally the infrastructure was mainly designed for making health data easily accessible by health care professionals and citizens, the service landscape is evolving. New targets are connected with empowering the citizens, providing means for acting on behalf of the person, and building support for mHealth applications. This talk will cover the new Personal Health Record system, extensions to the patient portal, and discuss the upcoming legislation updates related to the health and social care reform and to the GDPR.

- Pia Jepersen (Danmark)

Organisator: Normen
