Years before the pandemic, the healthcare industry had already been busily digitally transforming itself.

The healthcare sector is becoming increasingly susceptible to cyber-attacks, threatening day-to-day activities and compromising confidential healthcare data.

In this blog, we examine how the technologies for securing data being developed by the EU H2020 projects, HEIR and CyberKit4SME, can be combined to provide a highly innovative, non-repudiable log of access to medical FHIR data. This log itself is secured by a fine-grained access policy.
