HDS certification for hosting healthcare data in France
ASIP Santé, the French Governmental Agency for Digital Health, is highly conscious of how sensitive personal healthcare data is. It has set a rigorous framework for the practices associated with developing healthcare data hosting solutions in France.
Since 2016, we have held the Health Data Hosting Approval (HADS) certification, and we received HDS certification for some of our solutions in 2019.
Our Hosted Private Cloud solution and the dedicated servers in our HG and FS-MAX ranges are HDS-certified for activities 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6 of the framework.
Activity 5 refers to the administration and operation of the information system containing healthcare data. This needs to be managed directly by the customer or their data manager.
We have added further security measures to our HDS-certified SDDC solutions. These include token validation for critical actions, access control lists (ACLs) for administration interfaces, specific reports on sensitive actions, and specific features for account management.
This certification involves shared responsibilities between the customer and the HDS-certified hosting provider. We provide advice to customers who would like to carry out activities that require certification. Other than legal obligation, the level of security required for a certification is an essential factor for our customers, and contributes to a healthy digital ecosystem.
