In a current hospital environment where Health Information Systems (HIS) are daily tools that support the clinical practice, any problem can cause more than simple delays. The HIS are becoming ever more specialized, leading to a high need for interoperability between various applications. The high degree of interoperability combined with a diversity of applications, and service providers, makes it increasingly difficult to find the cause of a problem in one of the applications, since this may be an error in integration, infrastructure or even a software update. Any log systems analysis can take hours or days, even with help of the various system suppliers responsible for each one of the deployed application. Which of your applications can be inactive for a day without generating panic in the services?
With the sheer number of applications in hospital environments, it is not easy to keep track of activity within systems, “Is the person who logged into the workstation the same person who logged into the imaging application at that workstation?”. Health data sensitivity issues related to security incidents and an increasing dependence on systems overall performance, makes the public trust and the Hospital capacity to cope and at the same time reduce operational costs, heavily dependent on the institutional capacity to put in place a fully traceable system for the actions of the various stakeholders participating in the entire health process. HS.REGISTER aims to empower health institutions with a system that:
- facilitates compliance with the rules defined in the GDPR (European Data Protection General Regulations)
- be comparable to ATNA systems (Audit Trail and Node Authentication)
- facilitates the BSHI certification process (Brazilian Society of Health Informatics)
