You are a Swiss institution (e.g. hospital, organisation, etc.) that would like to outsource data storage and data processing to the BioMedIT infrastructure
By linking to the BioMedIT Network, hospitals benefit from a trusted research IT environment to which they can “outsource” research data management and data analysis, without the need to develop their own costly and time consuming in-house infrastructures and know-how.
By providing an SPHN-compliant secure framework for each project (i.e. tenants, with tenant-specific security configuration), and simultaneously remaining highly flexible as regards IT configuration within the tenants, BioMedIT nodes can offer an environment suitable for research in complement to the offer of hospital IT services.
The three BioMedIT nodes have already established pilot collaborations with university hospitals in their respective geographic area (Basel, Lausanne, Zurich). Aspects of these collaborations typically cover:
- initial review and approval of security concepts for the tenants by hospital IT,
- support for secure data transfers,
- deployment of data management systems and data analysis software,
- configuration of data access control (i.e. configuration of tenant access for IT staff, data managers and data analysts, according to applicable policies).
Leveraging container technologies and related deployment management tools, configuration effort invested in one node are immediately transferrable to other nodes.
