Recertification 08/2015

Since the recertification in 2013, the core components of the e-pacs service have not been modified.

There have been minor changes in the application environment (cf. the short public report).

Recertification  06/2013

Since the recertification in 2011, the core components of the e-pacs service have not been modified.

There have been minor changes in the application environment (cf. the short public report).

Recertification 05/2011

Since the certification in 2008, the core components of the e-pacs service (department server and deep storage server) have not been modified.

There have been some changes in the application environment (e.g., migration from Windows Server 2003, to Windows Server 2008 - for details, cf. the short public report). These changes do not have any impact on the evaluation results.

In 2009, § 11 BDSG (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz - German Federal Data Protection Act) was amended. This provision stipulates the requirements for processing security agreements between controllers and processors. The evaluation proved that the standard contract used by Telepaxx is in line with the (new) requirements.

Initial Certification 09/2008

e-pacs archives x-ray and other medical data on patients. It is used by radiologists, hospitals and physicians in private praxis. The service mainly comprises two components: The e-pacs department server located at the customer's site and the e-pacs deep storage server located at Telepaxx' premises. Medical data are encrypted prior to their transmission from the department server to the deep storage server. Moreover, instead of patient names, pseudonyms are transmitted as part of the header data. Thus, Telepaxx cannot access the x-ray image data and does not receive any personal information about the patients concerned.
