In this webinar we’ll have a short recap on what IHAN is all about and how it works in practice including IHAN requirements and core functionality. We’ll use again My Travel Health pilot as a practical example and deep dive into a governance through a Data Ecosystem Rulebook that includes business, technical, legal, data and ethical sections. We will have plenty of time for interaction and questions.

From promise to practise – IHAN Architecture, requirements, functionality

Short recap
As IHAN is not a piece of software or an application but a new way to practice Data Economy, the architecture of IHAN is a collection of requirements rather than a technical specification. The basic components are identity of an individual, data associated to that individual and the consent of that identified individual granting access to the associate data.

Rulebook – a data ecosystem governance framework

Rulebook describes organisations’ legal, business, technical and governance framework in a data ecosystem. It is a founding document that ecosystem partners sign to adhere to. Rulebook Template contains a set of control questions that guides data ecosystem members to create an initial version of a specific rulebook making it possible for organisations to join various data ecosystems more easily and cost efficiently ensuring fair and sustainable business.
