To prevent data breaches and safeguard sensitive information
By creating an environment where patients' data is safe 
By moving to Google Cloud and rendering saving files locally obsolete

All Data in the Cloud - Safe?

More and more healthcare organizations are migrating their information systems to the cloud. This allows employees to access their calendar, mail and documents on-the-go, as well as at home, which promotes efficient and flexible working habits. But is it safe to access client data from the ECD (Elektronisch Cliënten Dossier, "Electronic Client File") in the cloud, wherever you may be? Up until recently, the answer was no.

“Thanks to Google Workspace, we now have more time for what matters most: the client.”
Jaap de Bruijn Chairman Board of Directors Prisma

Edit Documents Without Leaving the Browser

Prisma, Google and Adapcare came up with a unique solution that solved the security issue. Prisma switched completely over to Google Workspace: mail, agenda, storage, documents, spreadsheets, presentations, authentications, and videoconferencing, everything in the cloud.

From now on, Prisma employees can access and edit documents from their ECD without having to leave their browser. Downloading a document is no longer necessary: clicking a Google document in ECD opens the document in the browser without having to download it. Uploading documents is also no longer necessary. A Prisma employee can make a new Google document from within the ECD. The document is then saved in the cloud, although the ECD does manage access permissions. The document cannot leave the ECD to be shared with third parties.

Compliant While Saving Costs

Thanks to this unique solution, data leaks are no longer a concern for Prisma. Everything is shared, accessed and edited in the cloud. Saving locally is no longer applicable, which means sensitive client information is managed with complete control thereof. This approach means Prisma complies with the most strict requirements of the NEN7510, while also saving considerable costs.
