Researchers have shown that federated learning is successful in the context of brain imaging, by being able to analyze MRI scans of brain tumor patients and distinguish healthy brain tissue from cancerous regions.
Cybersecurity in healthcare involves the protecting of electronic information and assets from unauthorized access, use and disclosure. Cyberattacks are of particular concern for the health sector. They threaten the security of systems and information and the health and safety of patients. We cover trends and possible solutions such as AI systems or blockchain.
Newer concepts like edge computing are regularly discussed alongside the cloud within the healthcare sector, often as if they are each exclusive approaches to infrastructure. However, using one does not eradicate the ability to utilise the other.
“The digital transformation will make healthcare even more human. It will enable us to provide preventive and personalized healthcare,” says Prof. Dr. Koen Kas, Professor of Oncology at Ghent University, Belgium.
Using blockchain, researchers have developed a prototype of an app that may potentially prescribe the optimal dose of medicine for the individual patient, as well as prevent counterfeit products.
Researchers have built a device that could protect your pacemaker, other medical tech from remote hacks before they happen.
Prototype web portal shows technology’s potential to protect and streamline the clinical trials process.
Researchers at the University of California San Diego develop a new non-touch technology that rapidly identifies infants and children.
Engineers have successfully developed and validated the feasibility of blockchain-based technologies for secure, confidential sharing of patient medical records.
The use of blockchain will change paradigm towards patient-centered healthcare.
“A central pillar of blockchain is trust, because data cannot be altered,” says Dr Eberhard Scheuer, Chairman of the Health Information Traceability Foundation.
The Danes show how e-health can work at the state level. As a healthcare portal, sundhed.dk is a central access point for doctors and patients alike to look at findings, medications, treatment plans or billing.
