National Health Data Warehouse Bangladesh for Remote Health Monitoring: Features, Problems and Privacy IssuesRemote Health Monitoring Workshop (2016)
It is a great initiative by the Government of Bangladesh to
establish the National Health Data Warehouse of Bangladesh.
Currently health data from different govt. organizations are being
collected and summarized through two open source software
solutions: DHIS2 and OpenMRS. The warehouse opens door to
many possibilities. Healthcare providers and researchers will be
able to discover the knowledge hidden in the national warehouse.
Preserving record linkage in national health data warehouse by
retaining patient identifiable attributes is essential for effective data
mining. On the other hand, identifiable health data have high risk
to patient privacy and also make the security of health information
systems vulnerable to hackers. In this paper, we have presented the
available features and limitations of National Health Data
Warehouse of Bangladesh. As the warehouse is an integrated
server based information system, we have also discussed the
security threats in the healthcare servers around the globe. We
have provided recommendations to overcome the current problems
and to improve the performance and security of the warehouse.
