Telemedicine is on the rise! Just in Europe, the telemedicine market is expected to triple in 2019, but is still far from being widely used in Europe and Brazil. The market growth barriers are related with concerns about confidentiality and privacy of health data and lack of ethical rules, especially when it operates cross borders.
Telemedicine involves the circulation of very sensitive data – the patient’s health information, bounded by privacy restrictions, despite that it can be released for research under specific conditions. Total anonymisation is sometimes difficult to apply without affecting data. Access should be restricted but it shall be processed timely and be available. Plus, in today’s world, cyber-attacks and security breaches have become a real threat to the sensitive data gathered by medical devices every day.
Atmosphere will support the deployment of IT health market by:
These properties will be demonstrated through a use case of automatic Medical Imaging Biomarkers (MIB) solutions. The MIB will process medical images with the ability to evaluate trustworthiness in performance, privacy, availability, robustness and dependability, while ensuring different levels of confidentiality in a multi-tenant scenario, with data transfer across continents. For example, they will be able to predict (i) the execution time of their deep learning applications given the number of images to be labeled and/or (ii) the time needed to train a deep network given the number of iterations to run.
