teamplay cloud-based service for monitoring dose levels and imaging system efficiency receives EuroPriSe Seal

Bonn, 18.10.2016

teamplay enables hospitals and other medical facilities to monitor the utilization efficiency of their medical imaging devices as well as radiation dose. This helps them to improve their image acquisition procedures and ensure that radiation doses are as low as reasonably possible to meet clinical needs. teamplay consists of Web-based services and a software-only gateway (the "teamplay Receiver") that acts as an intermediary between hospital systems and the Web-based services.

The responsibility for the lawful processing of patient data lies with the users of the service, but teamplay greatly facilitates its privacy-compliant use: Hospitals and other medical facilities can choose between three preconfigured privacy profiles when using the service. These profiles all adhere to the principle of data minimization, but differ in the degree of de-identification of patient data, with the strictest providing a true anonymization of patient data. Siemens Healthineers also provides the users of the service with guidance on how to utilize teamplay in a privacy-compliant manner.

When users choose a privacy profile that requires them to collect patients’ consent and release from medical confidentiality, they can revert to a high-quality template that is made available by Siemens Healthineers.

The evaluation by EuroPriSe was conducted by Dr. Irene Karper (legal expert) and Ralf von Rahden (technical expert). It confirmed that patient data are de-identified by the teamplay receiver in accordance with the selected privacy profile prior to being uploaded to the cloud-based teamplay platform, and that the utilization of the involved sub-processors (Microsoft Ireland Operations Ltd. and Siemens Healthcare Private Limited, India) is in line with EU data protection law.

“Siemens Healthineers demonstrated exemplary commitment to putting the idea of data protection by design and default into practice,” said Sebastian Meissner, head of the EuroPriSe Certification Authority. “The teamplay receiver completely removes data types that could be used for (re-)identification of patients or reliably replaces them with a pseudonym or a less precise value, such as an age range.”

“Privacy-by-Design and the related transparency were our guiding principles for the development of teamplay. With this in mind, we enable our customers to fulfil the highest European privacy standards,” said Dr. Arthur Kaindl, Head of Digital Health Services, Siemens Healthineers. “We are very proud that our approach was honored with the certification we received from EuroPriSe and ULD.”
