As technology advances and the potential of data to transform healthcare flourishes, so does the importance of data privacy and security.

Data privacy and security – a brief overview
HT: As Head of Data Services, could you give us a brief overview of what data privacy and security is and how you ensure it?
Bryn Roberts: To understand how data privacy is ensured, we must first understand the different types of data that are collected and how they are being used. Within Roche Information Solutions, we have two main customer areas: Lab Insights and Provider Insights. Provider Insights typically serve healthcare professionals and providers, or patients directly, while Lab Insights serves operations and management of medical and diagnostic laboratories.
