On May 6-8, 2014, the Infotecs security specialists together with the HMDS company present innovative IT security solutions on conhIT. The conhIT, held by Messe Berlin, is the European highlight in the field of healthcare IT. Under the motto "Connecting Healthcare IT", the manufacturers, customers, politicians, and scientists exchange experience in improving efficiency and quality of the healthcare by implementing IT solutions.
Together with the HMDS company, hall 1.2/B-111, Infotecs specialists consult the visitors on safe work in the healthcare IT environment. The HMDS company acts all over Germany as an IT service provider in the medical area and ensures data protection, quality management, and medical products security for more than a hundred medical practices and clinics. In this matter, HMDS also develops proprietary systems and solutions for the secure data storage, fail-safety as well as for the secure Internet access in the medical facilities.
At conhIT, HMDS Diktat is announced, that is the admission note solution developed in collaboration between HMDS and Infotecs. It is a workflow solution that joins traditional dictation work with modern secure and fully automated equipment. A doctor speaks the patient's medical research results to the voice recorder; the encrypted digital audio file is automatically transferred to the secretary over the Internet or Intranet. It speeds up the workflow and saves costs.
For the secure and encrypted transfer of the sensitive data (for example, between a doctor and typist or between several doctors and a health insurance company or labs), ViPNet VPN, an IT solution by Infotecs, is used. As opposed to classical PKI-based VPN solutions, the certified ViPNet technology is remarkable by the proprietary symmetric key management system and by the possibility to establish direct client-to-client connections between two or more endpoints.
"Because IT security and data protection play one of the key roles in the medical area, we would like to make a healthcare segment our new target," comments Sergej Torgow, COO at Infotecs GmbH. "As the most important European e-health event, conhIT offers us an outstanding platform to introduce our cryptographic solution to the IT responsible medical facilities."
