The e-science group participated in the ASCLEPIOS project (Advanced Secure Cloud Encrypted Platform for Internationally Orchestrated Solutions in Healthcare). ASCLEPIOS is a project funded by the H2020 programme aimed to maximise and increase the trust of users on cloud-based healthcare services. The ASCLEPIOS eHealth Cloud-based framework deploys several modern cryptographic and access control mechanisms for protecting corporate and sensitive data.
At the Amsterdam UMC, we built a prototype of an electronic medical record system to demonstrate the usage of the ASCLEPIOS framework to enable cross-organisation secure data sharing. The prototype exploits novel encryption and attribute-based access control (ABAC) approaches to secure medical data in the cloud. The use case considers sharing of patient during an emergency, which involve the collaboration among healthcare professionals from the emergency call center, ambulance services and hospitals. Access to the data is granted dynamically to healthcare professionals that are involved in the patient’s treatment.
