Quentry enables medical professionals to share images, display the images in a web-based viewer and to add comments such as medical opinions. The responsibility for the lawful processing of patient data lies with the users of the service. They are advised by Brainlab that the legitimate use of Quentry requires the collection of patients' informed consent and release from medical confidentiality and that they are obliged to verify the identity of other users in a reliable way prior to sharing medical information with them.

The evaluation according to EuroPriSe was conducted by Johanna Laas (legal expert) and Dr. Michael Foth (technical expert). One particular focus of the evaluation was on the examination of the multi-layered encryption solution that is employed by Brainlab to ensure the confidentiality of patient data that is processed within Quentry. The result of the technical evaluation was that this innovative solution approximates the level of a true end-to-end encryption to the greatest extent possible under the given circumstances.

”Brainlab expended a great deal of effort in order to ensure the confidentiality of sensitive data” said Sebastian Meissner, Head of the EuroPriSe Certification Authority. “The comprehensive privacy hints that are provided to users of the service and Quentry’s ability to de-identify meta data about patients are other positive aspects that deserve to be highlighted”.

Since the evaluation of the Quentry service gave rise to questions of general importance regarding the application of EuroPriSe criteria that had not been answered by the Certification Authority before, the EuroPriSe Advisory Board was asked for and delivered its advice on these issues. This was the first time that the board was consulted in this way.

“Our goal was to go above and beyond the most stringent requirements for high-level data protection that customers and government regulators demand with Quentry” said Rainer Birkenbach, Executive Vice President at Brainlab AG. “We’re pleased to see our efforts rewarded by EuroPriSe.”
