Digitization in healthcare

IT security and data protection in telematics infrastructure, telemedicine and medical technology
Connecting practices, hospitals and pharmacies to IT was just the beginning of digital progress. The future integration of health care professions, rehabilitation and care facilities, upstream and downstream sectors of drug and vaccine supply as well as laboratory services will set the next milestone.

Digital transformation in healthcare - our offer

Our IT security solutions are designed for the future. We offer technologies that reliably protect confidential medical data, its transmission and environment. Whether health apps, cloud solutions or the connection of medical technology devices - we ensure trustworthy implementation.

Security for...

We provide secure access to the telematics infrastructure.

The secunet connector securely connects small and large medical facilities to the TI. It is certified by the Federal Office for Information Security and approved by gematik.

We secure the networking of operating theatres, medical technology and infrastructures.

Through secure and flexible gateway technology, we protect medical technology and operator networks from damaging influences caused by outdated or unsafe medical technology. For hospital networking, we rely on a uniform neutral solution: secunet medical connect.

We rely on IT security as an enabler for complex and innovative solutions.

Digital sovereignty and trustworthiness in the cloud: SecuStack ensures full control over processed and stored data. The cloud operating system ensures security, trustworthiness and transparency to prevent digital dependency.

We transform paper-based processes into secure electronic patient data processing.

Multi-factor authentication provides security and data protection for web services. In addition to a secure login, it ensures auditability when transactions are authorised or digitally signed data and documents are submitted.

We transform paper-based processes into secure electronic patient data processing.

Digital certificates for authentication, signing and encryption ensure confidentiality and integrity online. A public key infrastructure (PKI) is required to generate, use and manage these digital certificates.

We secure workstations through virtualisation technology.

In the SINA Workstation, several workstations with different security ratings can be operated in parallel on one device. Users move securely and comfortably in their familiar working environment. With desktop, notebook or tablet - online and offline.

Digitization in the hospital

In addition to the Hospital Structure Fund Ordinance (KHSFV), the Hospital Future Act (KHZG) is now also intended to give hospitals a digital update. We take a holistic view of the IT infrastructure in hospitals, taking into account regulatory legislative projects. You are interested in- for our contribution to the implementation of measures under the Hospital Structural Fund Ordinance (KHSFV) or- for advice and support regarding the targeted implementation of funding projects within the Hospital Futures Act (KHZG)?

Our commitment to the Entscheiderfabrik

"Corporate success through beneficial digitization projects" - this is the declared goal of the ENTSCHEIDERFABRIK Eco System. To this end, the platform offers participants know-how transfer, networking, training and certification.

Each year, the top five digitization topics are selected from twelve, which are then tested for a year in a hospital as a proof of concept for their benefits.

In the 2022 decision-maker cycle, secunet made it to the finalists with the topic "Secure connection of networkable systems in local spheres of influence in medical care to digital value-added services" and will be represented at the topic competition in early March. Further information on the event can be found here.

"The digitization demands in hospitals bring immense challenges for management personnel. The ENTSCHEIDERFABRIK brings together the right people to tackle these challenges. We look forward to an active participation full of discussion, courage to find new solutions and opportunities to tackle things together."
