E-health is the buzzword that describes the digitalization of the health sector. The use of IT in the healthcare sector brings with it many opportunities, especially for personalized medicine and the resulting strong collaboration with patients, medical technology companies, doctors and other stakeholders. Modern identity management enables you to securely manage the digital identities of the parties involved, establish fine-grained rights and role management and ensure the protection of sensitive medical data.
The opportunities of Cloud Identity and
Access Management in the healthcare sector
Modern, digital health care is based on cooperation
The parties involved in the healthcare sector are diverse – patients, medical technology, clinics, doctors, insurance companies, nurses, etc. During the digitalisation of the healthcare sector, the interaction with the participants increasingly takes place through new portals and apps. Therefore, access to the sensitive data to be protected must be separated according to the function of the parties involved in the medical cases. With cidaas, user authorizations can be carefully restricted through groups and roles. Furthermore, scopes can be used to limit the authorisations for the applications through which the user is logged in.
Indeed, modern, digital health care has many participants who contribute to the patient’s recovery and health. The strong interaction brings many advantages. It enables personalised treatment. A personalised treatment can only be successful with the successful cooperation with the patient and the companies involved in the treatment. Delegated administrators can manage, update, and authorise users in their area of responsibility.
Smart medical things – implants and devices
One trend in the health care sector is medical devices. Hearing aids, pacemakers, insulin measuring devices – all things are linked and supplemented by digital services. All devices must function in an ecosystem and their interaction must be secured. With cidaas IoT device management you register all systems that identify and authorize themselves via protocols.
Digital services for personalised treatment
The healthcare sector is in flux. In recent years, for example, services related to the so-called Quantified Self have been driving patient expectations. He wants to be informed. Putting oneself in others’ hands only works if trust is established if the patient feels understood. In the process, more and more services will emerge that meet these expectations and the patient’s demand. At the end of the day, there will be not just one application, but several, for different purposes. This result, among other things, from the smart medical things. With cidaas you create an identity across all channels. By logging in once, users can access different of your services and stay logged in.
More security and data protection in medicine
Due to the sensitive medical data, security mechanisms are essential. Out-of-the-box cidaas API security, multi-factor authentication and fraud detection. These mechanisms are central elements to protect against cybercrime. The consent management of cidaas enables you to obtain, manage and version consent during registration or login and for specific occasions. This creates trust.
