Digital Health and Patient Data

From 35C3 Wiki

Description Even in healthcare, the analogous age is almost over (even though some of us still have to carry DVDs with X-ray images from one doc to the next). But where will our health data be stored and processed in the future? On Apple's and Amazon's servers? Or is it possible to have independent and privacy-friendly projects in Europe? Do we need the government to take action or will grassroot solutions be successful? Let's meet + share views and experiences.

How do you store your own health data? Are there any privacy-friendly solutions that are at the same time user-friendly? (Could your grandpa use them?) Or do you think we'll soon become "post-privacy" with regard to our data? Let's discuss.

This meeting is subject to the Chatham House Rule (

PLEASE NOTE: As we had lots of attendees but only 60 minutes, we were barely able to scratch the surface of digital health and patient data in this meeting. Thus, anyone interested is welcome to contact me via e-mail (see above) or Twitter (@jochris451 or @serapionblog), and I will set up a mailing list to enable further discussion and possibly the formation of an interest/working group. Thanks!

Update, January 2: The mailing list is now up and running. Visit to subscribe!
