We want to explore ideas that lead to solutions that sustainably leverage opportunities and mitigate challenges in health.
We'd also like to challenge the logic that people who finance the development of health apps own all the data that they collect leading to the migration of health data so that it can be added into bigger and bigger data sets, which is crucial to the development of mHealth.
Encryption to secure patients’ private and personal information on m-health platforms: Techniques that can aid to protect health data when it is shared or transmitted between systems.
Authentication and authorization of users on mhealth platforms: Innovations that will tackle controlling access to sensitive health information of different kinds (including images, etc) for various users within the medical digital data value chain.
Integration of legacy healthcare systems with mhealth platforms: how can we mitigate interoperability challenges that occur along the medical digital data value chain - when new data is merged with legacy systems.
Innovations in telehealthcare; how can we still ensure data privacy and information security in the era of the provision of health services electronically.
