20 August 2018: ​Secure data and trusted collaboration company IXUP Limited (IXUP) (ASX: IXU) will showcase how the Australian healthcare industry can address the data collaboration challenges faced by many healthcare organisations through the use of its innovative software environment.

Speaking at the 2018 Healthcare Leaders Forum on 21-22 August at the Swissotel in Sydney, IXUP Chairman, Tim Ebbeck, will discuss the importance of secure data and how researchers and healthcare providers can use trusted data collaboration to discover insights into patterns of patient care across the medical ecosystem - without compromising patient privacy or data security. His presentation on​ 22​ August is titled: ​Better Healthcare Outcomes Through Collaboration: Securely Connecting Sensitive Data Sets.

Open data sharing, which facilitates the free exchange of medical tests, results, and information among institutions, patients, and providers, is expected to improve healthcare and lower costs. It’s already changing the world of oncology by collecting, storing, and sharing genetic data. However, there are enormous risks associated with open data sharing.

In only its first full quarter of reporting, the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) identified the health industry as the highest contributor to notifiable data breach (NDB) numbers. Its 49 notifications from healthcare bodies from April to June this year is up, on average, from the 15 reports made under the first six weeks of the NDB scheme’s implementation.

IXUP is an Australian technology company that has developed a unique approach to collaborating data from multiple organisations. Unlike risky data sharing practices, IXUP’s secure data collaboration never exposes data - not even to other participants.

“To make the right decisions, you need all the facts – and if you’re analysing sensitive data in isolation, you don’t have the full picture. Sharing data with third parties can be slow and insecure – it can put your customers and your organisation at risk,” explains Ebbeck.

With IXUP’s software environment, researchers and healthcare providers can gain a better understanding of how they can deliver optimal and innovative patient care and outcomes, while still protecting data and retaining complete control over it. That’s the IXUP difference. It’s the only secure data collaboration software that empowers you to innovate by connecting data and uncovering hidden insights to see the bigger picture.
