December 2018–

The ASCLEPIOS project will research novel cryptographic approaches for cloud-based e-health systems and will develop mechanisms for protecting sensitive data in healthcare. The vision of ASCLEPIOS is to maximize and fortify the trust of users on cloud-based healthcare services by developing mechanisms for protecting both corporate and personal sensitive data. While researchers have developed many theoretical models that could enhance the security level of healthcare services, only a rudimentary set of techniques are currently in use. ASCLEPIOS is exploiting this gap by using by utilizing several modern cryptographic approaches to build a cloud-based eHealth framework that protects users’ privacy and prevents both internal and external attacks.

ASCLEPIOS offers the ability to users to verify the integrity of their medical devices before receiving them while receiving simultaneously certain guarantees about the trustworthiness of their cloud service provider. Furthermore, ASCLEPIOS offers a novel solution through which healthcare practitioners and medical researchers are able to calculate statistics on medical data in a privacy-preserving way. Finally, various activities will be organized by the project to raise awareness in the healthcare industry. All these results will be shown by three demonstrators provided by ASCLEPIOS healthcare partners, involving three leading European hospitals.

To demonstrate the usability of the investigated and developed security framework, ASCLEPIOS will implement three advanced demonstrators based on real-life scenarios provided by project partners from the healthcare sector.

  • Data sharing for improved decision in stroke acute care by AMC

  • Collaboration and analysis platform for inpatient and outpatient sleep medicine by CBMI and Charité

  • Privacy-Preserving monitoring and benchmarking of antibiotics prescription by NSE
