Case Study: National eHealth Security Framework Review

Business Aspect consultants with extensive experience in eHealth and identity management / security domains undertook a rapid review of the first revision of a national framework designed to manage security and access for eHealth applications. The review assessed the framework against international standards and better practice and also assessed the effectiveness of the framework through engagement with senior stakeholders. A key consideration in this work was the extent to which national identifier solutions could be utilised in local health systems.

This work delivered a concise report which identified strengths and weaknesses of the security framework and made a series of recommendations around future work which could help to strengthen and further build on the solid work undertaken in the initial release.

This project demonstrates Business Aspect’s experience in the application of national identity management solutions and in working in complex policy environments such as eHealth.
