Q: How can I make sure that my information is protected in terms of privacy and security?

A:  The system follows the "privacy by design" principles by which the system design enforces privacy and security using mechanisms for:

  • authentication: verifying that "you are who you say you are";
  • authorization verifying that "you are permitted to do what you are trying to do";
  • awareness: functionality to enable the users to be informed of the usage made with their data.

The system's security and privacy design considers relevant European/national data protection regulations to make sure that only needed health information will be provided, only to authorized parties and for authorized purposes which are to the benefit of patients.
