The AIT Austrian Institute of Technology (AIT) provides a mobile application (App) in the Google Play Store, which allows you as a user to record your health data locally on your smartphone. This app can also be used in conjunction with a dedicated web-based data management system (DMS), also developed by AIT and operated in by AIT or in cooperation with a healthcare provider.
By linking the app to the web-based DMS, you are participating in a tele health service. The prerequisite for this is your explicit, written consent to participate with subsequent registration of a user or patient account in the DMS. Thus, it is possible to store your data recorded on the smartphone centrally on the DMS of the respective tele heatlh service, where they are secured and after appropriate authorization and authentication of your professional support team can be viewed. This will allow them to get an overview of your health situation and subsequently send messages to you or adapt your configuration of the tele health service.
Without linking with a web-based DMS, your entered data will only be stored at your smartphone. Non of your data will be transferred to a central data service and no one has access to your data!
Use of tele health service
The AIT Austrian Institute of Technology GmbH (AIT) as an application operator or as a service hosting partner on behalf of your healthcare provider takes the protection of your personal data very seriously and underlines the commitment to privacy with this privacy statement.
Your health service provider through which you use the tele health service, as well as the AIT observe the statutory provisions of the Data Protection Act (DSG 2000), the EU Data Protection Directive and the EU Data Protection Regulation (effective from 25.05.2018), including any successor provisions.
Collection and processing of data
Personal data (such as name, address) will only be collected and processed, as far as you voluntarily provide it to your healthcare provider with the prior consent for registration, and provided that they are entered by you using the app itself.
In the event that you get a mobile phone provided by your health care provider, an additional app can be installed that reads out the serial number of the issued mobile phone (IMEI). This information is also transmitted and stored for logistical purposes to the DMS.
The web application of the tele health service partly uses so-called cookies. These serve to make the application more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and stored by your browser. Most of the cookies used on this system are called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after your visit. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses.
