New innovation to improve diabetic child's quality of life
A secure method of transferring data from the monitoring devices of diabetic children helps in patient treatment
12 June 2019
HUS Helsinki University Hospital and Sitra, the Finnish Innovation Fund, along with partners have launched a proof-of-concept project to develop a secure method of transferring data from the monitoring devices of diabetic children to their parents and the hospital. The proof of concept focuses on building an integrated authorization process within the system and working towards secure data transfer. This is beneficial for the patient’s treatment and monitoring that their physician receives the patient data as quickly as possible.
Tieto is contributing to the case with its blockchain-based solution that enables new way of processing the patient-centric consent management. The solution is based on decentralized identity technology, a cutting-edge solution area, in which Tieto is globally one of the pioneers. The blockchain technology ensures that the data collected by the parents is transferred securely to the HUS data lake and medical professionals.
