Executive Summary

 

This deliverable is aimed at supporting the development of interoperable identity management systems within the e-Health sector, both throughout and between EU states. Creating comprehensive, practical, and cost effective systems that work together throughout the EU, requires a number of key challenges, discussed in this report, to be addressed and resolved.  This report seeks to illustrate how FIDIS research in the area of interoperability of identity management systems can be assimilated and exploited for this purpose.

When developing this report the work undertaken in two related FIDIS deliverables has been represented within the models proposed and in the application of the management principles.  The relevant deliverables are

  1. D4.11 – which explores the development of e-Health in the EU and reviews the processes for introducing e-Health applications in the different European States.

  2. D16.1 - whose main aim is to find agreement within the different disciplines, represented in FIDIS on the basic terminology needed to support dialogue on the very specific research field of privacy-friendly identity management in e-Government.

  1. This report furthermore extends the work of three previous deliverables of Work Package 4 on interoperability which may be found on the FIDIS website:  

    This report furthermore extends the work of three previous deliverables of Work Package 4 on interoperability which may be found on the FIDIS website:  

  1. D4.6:“Draft best practice guidelines”

  2. D4.7:Review and classification for a FIDIS identity model”

  3. D4.8:Creating the method to incorporate FIDIS research for generic application”

 

To enable the practical adoption of the management method we have proposed a FIDIS portal to assist with the dissemination and exploitation of the FIDIS research. The portal will be specified in Deliverable D4.10: “Specification of a portal for interoperability of identity management systems”.

 

  1. It is envisaged that the work being performed in WP4 will assist those seeking to develop interoperable eHealth systems in meeting the many challenges, in a methodical and comprehensive way, and will be suitable for performing the recommended e-Health applications, within an EU interoperability framework, as highlighted in the following EC reports:
