The e-health platform allows staff to share medical data, including scans, from any source. The system supports staff working from remote locations, using VPN connections and, when correctly authenticated, the records can also be accessed from a smartphone, Rzepka says, adding that he has had to assure the hospital board "that our system is sufficiently secure."
Compare and contrast this with the UK's own lumpen / un-joined-up health systems - the result of numerous ill-planned interventions / bungled developments by successive waves of predatory, budget-raiding IT-consultancy firms. I've seen the current government's Open Data 'strategy' and it's a fucking joke, possibly because they have never been serious about the idea of Open Government and have always had an unspoken intent to, basically, just sell public data to the private sector as it (a) creates temporary surpluses; and (b) becomes one less thing for the management-class to manage. A mixture of short-sighted stupidity and out-moded ideology.
