Cloud ECG (2016 - ongoing)


From January 2016, the eHealthLaw Research Unit participates in the project "Cloud ECG", a research funded by the Autonomous Province of Trento for the development of both new devices for the ECG acquisition and new solutions for the storage of the transmitted clinical data on cloud servers.


The goal of the study is to analyze the complex legal issues arising in the automated processing of health data collected and stored in a cloud computing platform.


The legal research is essential to the design of the technological solutions and the implementation of the appropriate technical and organizational measures in order to ensure privacy and security in the processing of health data made through these devices of latest generation.


Project partners are: Cardioline S.p.a., Fondazione Bruno KesslerCreate-Net




TreC - Cartella Clinica del Cittadino (2008-2013)


Our team has been involved (2008-2013) in a research commissioned to the Department of Legal Sciences of the University of Trento by Fbk (Fondazione Bruno Kessler) in order to explore, handle and solve the data protection & privacy issues raised by the development of "TreC - La Cartella Clinica del Cittadino" [3C - The Citizen's Health Record].


This latter research project, financed by the Government of the Autonomous Province of Trento, purports to implement, with the key collaboration of APSS Trento (Azienda Provinciale per i Servizi Sanitari di Trento), an integrated  E-Health system connecting all the public and private health providers of the Province.


The main idea upon which TreC has been developed is that citizens/patients, in their role of final users of the various players who on the whole contribute to the National Health Service, should be given access to a technology giving them the power of managing directly their health data and the rights that they have on these latter vis a vis the various health care providers.
