BEST

The Haemoassist® 2 IT-based service uses only pseudonymised data: Instead of the patient´s name, a specific ID is stored in the database of the service. The correlation of the patient´s name to this ID is only known to the patient and his/her physician.

ATTENTION:

Patients and physicians should pay special attention to privacy related issues of their IT systems (smart-phones, clients, etc.), as these items do not form part of the ToE.

Summary

The Haemoassist® 2 service compiles and stores data from patients and physicians that concerns the type of therapy and the development of the medical condition. This data is stored on the patients’ smartphones and in the central database. Instead of the patient´s name, a specific ID is stored in the database of the service.   

Details

Recert 2016

A new technical functionality was implemented for patients: They can now access the IT based-service not only via the already known smartphone app, but also via a new web interface which is secured by login + password and TANs. The (re-)evaluation of the EuroPriSe Experts concluded that this web interface as well as all other relevant components of Haemoassist® 2 (still) meet all applicable legal and technical EuroPriSe requirements (for details, please cf. the current version of the Short Public Report).

Initial Cert

Haemoassist® 2 is a smart-phone based therapy management application for haemophilia patients and their physicians. It consists of an electronic patient diary (application) in interaction with a web based monitoring-interface for the attending physicians.

The target of evaluation consists of the following components:

  • Provisioning of the electronic patient diary as well as the portal for physicians
  • The user registration process
  • All IT systems necessary for providing the electronic patient diary and the browser based application portal
  • Relevant contractual clauses

Excluded from the target of evaluation are the following components:

  • IT systems (clients) used by doctors and the smartphones that are used by patients to gain access to the Haemoassist® 2 service
  • Networks or active network components and further IT systems used to transfer or handle data 

Every patient automatically receives a “welcome package” from his/her physician describing the Haemoassist® 2 service in detail before he/she can download and use the Haemoassist® 2 app. The declaration of consent form for patients is part of this “welcome package”.

The Haemoassist® 2 service is limited to EU-member states and ist IT servers are located in Germany. The storage of personal data takes place only in Germany, but the Haemoassist® 2 service can also be used by patients who live in Austria, Denmark and other countries of the European Union.
