E-Health: How to enter this market full of opportunities and legal challenges?

Hospitals are gradually moving towards more comprehensive software systems for their day-to-day operations. However, new innovative apps and tools are not yet able to integrate fully with these systems, which causes problems for many operations like communication with patients. Opening up the systems and enabling easy data exchange through the use of API’s could be the solution. Why is this alignment key to success in the e-health industry?


Investing in privacy pays off

With or without data? That is not the question anymore. Successful innovations, from fintech, robotics, autonomous systems, machine learning, to other types of artificial intelligence, increasingly require vast amounts of data. The more qualitative data is gathered, the more you can improve your products and services, and consequently attract more customers. In turn, the more customers you can attract, the more data you can collect, effectively improving your innovation’s competitive edge. However, the privacy aspects are often overlooked when processing personal data, which is a shame. Besides the impact on customers, it will significantly diminish the value of your innovation and scare off investors, especially in the wake of the even stricter privacy rules and significant fines of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
