Idana Now Offers Hybrid Clouds for Clinics


Dear Companists,

Though Idana’s cloud solution complies with the strict General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), clinics attach great importance to saving their data locally. In order to allow clinics that would particularly benefit from a digitally supported anamnesis with automated documentation to use Idana without any concerns, our development team has spent the last few weeks working on a hybrid cloud solution suitable for clinics.

With success - early this week we received the approval of the data protection officer and a department of the University Hospital Freiburg ordered our new hybrid cloud solution with a set of pre-configured tablets - a first sales success for our brand new clinic solution! In this update, we would like to explain the significance of digital security means to clinics and hospitals and how our hybrid cloud solution works.


When code decides between life and death: IT security in healthcare

Clinics are special customers for eHealth companies in many respects: They bundle medical competence, have a high reach and, as multipliers, can thus promote faster market penetration than private practices. However, they are also particularly demanding customers - and for good reason: It was not only the malware program "WannaCry," which shut down more than 200,000 organizations, including several hospitals, throughout Europe in May 2017, that created an awareness of how important data protection is for clinics.

While data protection among private individuals is primarily associated with the fear of becoming a "transparent person" and being vulnerable in this way, data leaks in the clinic can be life-threatening for the patient. The loss of patient data is almost more problematic than data theft: Diagnostics is largely data-fed, and reliable data flow is also essential for the majority of treatments, for example in radiotherapy or for aids such as respiratory or monitoring devices.

Since attacks on IT systems or data breaches can pose a threat to patients' lives, a "simple" security standard is not sufficient. For this reason, clinics and hospitals, sometimes even larger practices, maintain their own servers on which IT is hosted.


Our solution for clinical use: The Idana Cloud Hybrid

The solution we devised for clinics relies on storing the data on the clinic's intranet, while simultaneously using the cloud to transmit the anamnesis data from the doctor's PC to the tablet and back.

As a result, patient data is only temporarily stored in the cloud and is deleted when the transfer process is complete. Although patient data is stored locally in the clinic, Idana can easily be used for telemedical surveys - even if patients use their own devices.

Best greetings from Freiburg,

Investments in crowdfunding projects offer great opportunities, but they are risk investments. In the worst case, the entire investment amount may be lost. Consequently, these investments are unsuitable for retirement plans. However, there is no obligation to make further contributions. Investors can minimize their risk by splitting their investment amount between crowdfunding campaigns rather than investing all of it in one crowdfunding campaign. Professional investors often follow this strategy because it causes the risk to be distributed among several investments. In this way, successful investments can balance other less successful investments.

The shares of the Companists are subordinated profit-participating loans (partiarische Nachrangdarlehen). Such loans are shares in a business with similar characteristics as equity. If the company becomes insolvent or is liquidated, the claims of the Companists – just like those of all other shareholders of the company – will be satisfied from the assets in the insolvency or the assets in liquidation only after the claims of all other external creditors have been satisfied. Thus, Companists are treated like any other shareholder of the company during insolvency or liquidation proceedings.

The company information published on the Companisto website is provided solely by the companies. The projections made by the companies do not guarantee successful development of the company in the future. Consequently, crowdfunding investments are suitable only for those investors who can cope with the risk of a total loss of the capital invested. Investors make their own independent investment decisions and bear all risks themselves.

The investments are provided and issued by the individual companies. Companisto is neither the provider nor the issuer of the investments, but solely the internet service platform.
