The latest outcomes of KONFIDO's WP3 were presented in the International Conference on Biomedical and Health Informatics (ICBHI 2017) that took place in Thessaloniki, Greece, November 18-21, 2017. Pantelis Natsiavas and Christine Kakalou from CERTH-INAB presented two papers entitled "Gap Analysis for Information Security in Interoperable Solutions at a Systemic level: The KONFIDO Approach" and "Identification of Barriers and Facilitators for eHealth Acceptance: The KONFIDO Study".

KONFIDO is conducting a survey in order to identify barriers and facilitators regarding cross-border data exchange from the patients' viewpoint. It mostly refers to scenarios where a patient is abroad for any reason (e.g. tourism, business trips etc.) and needs hospitalization to a foreign country. In those cases, a transfer of health data between the patient's home country and the hospitalization country in order to support his/her medical treatment, is needed.
