Data security & privacy policy

Data collection - Data is collected by users of Medopad - by patients on the app and by clinicians on their webportal. Medopad’s implementation team trains its users via a workshop. Our implementation team has received prior specialist training. This technical support is provided to users of Medopad as part of a service contract.

Data Access - All personally-identifiable data collected on Medopad is stored confidentially and is accessible to only patients and the clinicians chosen by them, known as authorised users. An authorised user can also be a medical professional whose employer (e.g. NHS hospital) has identified and authorised access. This process is recorded and regularly audited.

Data ownership - The copy of data in a patient’s account is owned by the patient. The copy of data in a clinician’s account is owned by the employer of the clinician. Patient, carers and clinicians can add new data and comments, and all additions are tracked with an audit trail. Medopad does not have access to individual accounts of clinicians or patients.

Data Encryption - Data is protected (at rest) using Server-Side Encryption with a strong, multi factor encryption key., the Amazon S3-Managed Encryption Keys (SSE-S3). Amazon SSE-S3 uses a 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES-256), to encrypt data. Amazon S3 encrypts each object with a unique key and as an additional safeguard, it encrypts the key itself with a master key that rotates regularly. All communications are encrypted and authenticated using TLS 1.2 (protocol), ECDHE_RSA with P-256 (key exchange), and AES_128_GCM (cipher) tdftfdfree6f 2048 bit keys.

Data anonymity - Third party and Medopad internal analysis is performed only on anonymised and aggregate data. We have processes in place to meet right to be forgotten requests as detailed in our privacy policy.
