To optimally prepare for the future, MediData started building a new «MediData Network» in 2017. A powerful platform with up-to-date security that offers users high-level comfort and additional services alongside service billing.
The MediData Network is provided in three different infrastructure formats. With the MediData Box, smaller practices and organizations receive a mini-computer as a stand-alone connection, while larger medical practices, which often work with a virtual IT infrastructure, receive a virtual appliance. In addition, a technical solution is provided for software providers that operate their industry applications in the cloud. Users are generally provided with online services and products that run exclusively on an appliance provided by MediData.
These products also include service billing in the form of so-called «transport products». MediData only provides the infrastructure for such data transport and cannot read the encrypted data itself. Therefore, the core challenge of the project was to secure the new MediData Network in such a way that only authorized individuals could access sensitive data.
