The newly launched KONFIDO project has started working on an innovative architecture that will enable secure exchange, processing, and storage of health related data.

KONFIDO addresses the challenges of secure storage and exchange of eHealth data, protection and control over personal data, and security of health related data gathered by mobile devices.

The objective is to make cross-border interoperation of eHealth services provided by individual countries possible, while allowing each participating entity (private and public actors, as well as empowered citizens) to enforce specific policies for protection and control of personal health related data.

The project takes a holistic approach – i.e. one targeting all the architectural layers of an IT infrastructure, and specifically: storage, dissemination, processing, and presentation.

KONFIDO builds on and extends the results of a best of breed selection of successful EU-funded projects, notably: epSOS, STORK, DECIPHER, EXPAND, and ANTILOPE.
