Healthcare data sharing across healthcare organizations is still a challenging task due to privacy and compliance requirements with  regulatory policies that can vary across states and countries, and organizations’ internal business requirements. These challenges are even more difficult to tackle if we consider the evolution of the healthcare toward the introduction of new devices, applications and social media.

The seminar will start with an overview of the most important privacy related challenges in the healthcare and socio-assistive scenarios (e.g. home care assistance). Three research and industrial case studies will be presented showing how many aspects that need to be considered while designing ICT systems that manage privacy sensitive data. Some of the aspects include the privacy policy design and enforcement, identification of data sharing protocols and design of software platforms that allow data owners to enforce their rights over their data.
