Abstract

Nowadays, many people move from one country to another for various reasons: tourism, work, studies, etc.; even with chronic or multi-pathological diseases. The main objective of SHIELD project is to create open and extendable security architecture with supported privacy mechanisms and trust of citizens, to provide systematic protection for the storage and exchange of health data across European borders. epSOS is a European project funded and finished dealing with security and interoperability of eHealth data is, that result in an OpenNCP (National Contact Point) architecture. In SHIELD project for the initial validation framework two OpenNCP virtual nodes would simulate the real nodes between Italy and Spain. Validation scenarios (realistic use cases) have been developed in three different member states (Italy, United Kingdom and Spain). The first scenario is an Italian citizen traveling to Spain that has an acute emergency episode (e.g. stroke) and loses consciousness. Spanish emergency department suddenly assists that patient and doctor wishes to check patientś health record. Results of the first round of validation frameworks of SHiELD project have been made successfully and presented to the European Commission. Security challenges need to be addressed when assessing eHealth solutions. Among others, the challenges are: interoperability, confidentiality, availability, integrity, privacy, ethics, regulations and eHealth data. Which data are going to be shared and by which mean? The first validations will be useful as the basis for both the “in depth” requirements analysis as well as setting the main pillars for the SHIELD architecture detailed design.
