This is how security and confidentiality are put in focus when welfare is digitized

Published: September 27, 2022, 10:29 am Updated: September 28, 2022, 1:53 pmDigital solutions create better and more efficient care and care in the welfare sector – but there are challenges that must be dealt with. Security and privacy must not be forgotten when the new technology is introduced. – It is important to review the whole and weigh the profits against the risks. Security must be evaluated on an ongoing basis to ensure that the security functions are used correctly, says Carl-Johan Ekelund, information security expert at Atea. The new digital welfare technology can make a big difference for users, staff and relatives. The technology can really revolutionize how the entire business in the welfare sector is conducted. At the same time that care and care are getting better, there are also savings to be made. There are many examples. A single medicine robot that is placed with an elderly person can, for example, free up 300 hours for the staff, which can then be spent on other users. Technical solutions that make it possible to write journals directly on site or hold digital meetings can also make work more efficient. Home monitoring, which involves supervision and care in the home via digital meetings and technology that the users themselves can use to measure their state of health, is another example . – You can already see that home monitoring brings big profits. Samples are followed up digitally and the care recipient receives quick feedback and knows immediately if something is not right. It gives better control over one’s own health and reduces anxiety. At the same time, home monitoring relieves care and reduces the risk of the spread of infection, says Malin Sölsnaes, head of the focus area elderly care at Atea.Many challenges with new technology in welfare However, before care providers invest in new technology, they must ensure that all regulatory requirements are met. How should permissions be regulated and by whom? On which servers are patient data stored? Does the data storage meet GDPR and other requirements? How is the data backed up and where is it stored? Is the right level of security used when it comes to encryption? How should the staff know which patient information can be shared in chats? Do the security alarms work on the existing networks and do they meet the requirements of SOS Alarm? What happens to login details when someone quits? – Before bringing in new, digital solutions for welfare technology, it is important to do thorough preparatory work together with the business, the IT department and other experts. Otherwise, you might end up with something that does not meet the safety requirements. If you build on security afterwards, it can be much more expensive and worse. All the savings that the new welfare technology would bring just disappear, says Carl-Johan Ekelund. Atea can help introduce welfare technology safely Atea has long and wide experience in helping municipalities and other care operators to better take advantage of the welfare technology and the digital solutions that the market offers – in a safe, secure and efficient way. – There is no doubt that welfare technology is a prerequisite for high-quality care and care – and for the elderly to be able to live independently and stay at home as long as they themselves want and are able. But the traps are many when it comes to technology. It is important to think both once and twice before letting a new, brilliantly attractive solution into the business. This is where we at Atea can help, concludes Carl-Johan Ekelund.About AteaBy creating a world-class IT infrastructure, Atea is helping to lay the foundation for a smarter and more innovative Sweden.
