Personally identifiable data means information that can attributed to an individual person, including patient name, address, post code, date of birth, Country Identification number, or other identifying features.
This information is held by the Hospital so it can provide you with safe and effective care.
The hospital is the “data controller”, meaning that they are in charge at all times of what happens with patient information. The "data processor" - for example, Scientie - must only process this data in strict accordance with the instructions of the data controller and the law.
The security of this patient data is our top priority. Patient data remains under the full control and direction of the Scientie. All data is stored securely, encrypted to the highest standards, and will never connect with services that do not offer the same standard of security that we adopt and use these checks are made in audits by our staff periodically by our staff, and will never used for any commercial purposes like advertising or insurance.
How Scientie processes data
The amount and type of data Scientie processes is determined by our partners.
Historical information is also vitally important for doctors and nurses when they're deciding the best treatment. Without that extra context, it’s impossible for clinicians to tell if a result reflects normal functioning organism or is dangerously higher.
Other historical data is also relevant. Patients who have had problems in the past, for example, are much more likely to develop others related diseases, so it’s important that clinicians are made aware of this as quickly as possible so they can give patients the most appropriate treatment. The same is true for whether a patient has recently had emergency surgery, or if they’ve had heart disease.
To deliver fast and reliable alerts to clinicians through mobile devices, this relevant patient information must be stored in advance, ready to be sent to a doctor or nurse at the first sign of a problem.DISCOVER MORE FROM SCIENTIE
