Siemens Healthineers Cloud Platform "teamplay" Awarded European Privacy Seal for Data Protection

Siemens HealthineersThe cloud-based platform "teamplay"(1) by Siemens Healthineers, together with its applications teamplay Dose, teamplay Usage, teamplay Protocols, teamplay Images, and teamplay Images Research, has been awarded the European Privacy Seal (EuroPriSe). The European Privacy Seal was first granted to teamplay in 2016, and must be regularly renewed. The privacy seal in its current version relates to the expansions made in recent years to the range of functions the teamplay applications offer, and now specifically checks whether the requirements of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) have been satisfied.

From the start, teamplay was developed in accordance with the principle of "Data Protection by Design and Default" and the level of transparency this principle implies. The Privacy Seal confirms that users who utilize teamplay as instructed by Siemens Healthineers can work with the cloud platform and the above applications in full compliance with the GDPR.(2)

With more than 4,000 healthcare institutions connected to teamplay, it is one of the world’s largest cloud-based networks for physicians, medical professionals, and decision-makers in the healthcare industry. Over 18,000 modalities from different vendors deliver data directly to the cloud platform.(3) The teamplay applications for performance management help healthcare providers, for example, support in making rapid, sound decisions based on transparent performance data.

That means it is possible to evaluate the number of imaging examinations just as easily as the radiation dose used in scans, or the capacity utilization of devices, rooms, and resources in a given department, down to individual devices and patient examinations. teamplay simplifies the reporting process and highlights where workflows need to be adjusted. In addition, users can connect via teamplay, sharing data to obtain comparisons and benchmarks and easily exchanging images and reports.
