Pseudonymization of Information for Privacy in e-Health

Forschungsförderungsprojekt
e-Health by definition requires the sharing of patient related data when and where necessary. Electronic health records (EHR) promise to improve communication between health care providers, thus leading to better quality of patients' treatment and reduced costs. As highly sensitive patient information provides a promising goal for attackers and is also demanded by insurance companies and employers, there is an increasing social and political pressure regarding the prevention of health data misuse. Within this project we develop --- based on our patent --- the new system PIPE (Pseudonymization of Information for Privacy in e-Health). It differs from existing approaches in its ability to securely integrate primary and secondary usage of health data. The aim of this project is (a) to broaden our patented approach to support (semi-)structured meta data, (b) to develop alternative secure storage and retrieval techniques, (c) to provide for secure storage and access to medical emergency data, (d) to provide a secure viewer that prevents man-in-the-middle attacks, and (e) to demonstrate our system in the context of genome analysis, storage, and retrieval.
