Digital health applications are disrupting the healthcare sector by bringing huge innovation and improving the quality of care. However, this innovation brings also some risks since those apps collect and store extremely privacy-sensitive data in the cloud and mobile environments.
According to the analysis performed by 39 Data Protection Authorities worldwide in 2014, 85% of the 1.211 analyzed mobile health apps do not comply with data protection laws and security requirements. This behaviour puts at serious risk users’ privacy and trust in digital health.
Chino helps application developers and enterprises to solve security and privacy law compliance issues by offering a secure platform to manage application users and how they access, store and share health sensitive data. Developers can easily integrate the Chino platform (its API) into their apps to ensure compliance, increase security, speed up application development, shorten time to market, at affordable pay-per-use cost.
To ensure the security of data transfers and storage Chino applies security-by-design principles and state-of-the-art security mechanisms. From the compliance point of view, Chino terms of service define its liabilities and it ensures that the data management is performed according to EU and Member States laws. In addition, Chino is working on ISO 9001 & 27001 certifications, giving more guarantees to its customers.
Thanks to its innovative services, the market opportunity, and the EC support (which will speed up the adequate team growth, marketing plan, technological roadmap implementation and international commercialization), the company expect to create over 46 high qualified jobs and generate a turnover over 10M€ by 2020. Furthermore, the overall results of this project
will catapult Chino company as a global leader on the digital health & cybersecurity market.
