1. HEALTH DATA IN NEW LEGAL SOLUTIONS AND STRATEGIC DOCUMENTS OF POLAND AND EU

dr hab Mariusz Duplaga, Szczepan Jakubowski, Artur Romaszewski

Due to their specificity and significance, health data are regulated by numerous legal strategic documents. The implementation of the concept of a Single European Data Space provides countries with the opportunity to share data, to be transparent and to guarantee the users the right to have control over their own data. Health data in electronic medical records should be machine-readable to the extent necessary for the re-use of the data. In response to the cybersecurity solutions that are applied in other countries, EU initiated the GAIA-X project whose aim is to become independent from American and Chines cloud computing service providers. The objective of the project is mainly to support innovation and digital transformation in EU.

dr hab Mariusz Duplaga, Szczepan Jakubowski, Mariusz Kielar, Artur Romaszewski

The progress in the transformation of paper-based medical records into their electronic form that results from legal regulations and organizational changes is a challenge to healthcare entities. Controls show that medical institutions make numerous mistakes, which may lead to cyber threat. Moreover, new (for the health sector) technological solutions are being developed such as trust services or registered electronic delivery, which improve the operations of the healthcare information system but require adaptation both on the part of the legislator and the medical entities themselves.

3. CYBERCHONDRIA AS A BY-PRODUCT OF EXTENSIVE USE OF HEALTH-RELATED INFORMATION ON THE INTERNET

dr hab Mariusz Duplaga, Mateusz Kobryn

Cyberchondria is defined as abnormal behaviour characterised by uncontrolled accessing health-related information available online resulting in distress and anxiety. People suffering from cyberchondria escalate their fear about possible severe medical consequences even in the presence of mild symptoms. Further, they fall into a vicious circle of anxiety and repeated search activities on the Internet in order to self-diagnose their medical conditions. The dimensions of cyberchondria in the society are not fully understood. The use of health-related information available online may have positive effect on health awareness and the ability of efficient use of healthcare resources. Although, the concept of health and e health literacy are known at least from about 20 years, their role in the development of cyberchondria has not been studied thoroughly. There are expectations that they could exert a protective effect, but this needs to be confirmed.

4. APPLICATION OF TELEMEDICINE IN STOMATOLOGY

dr hab Mariusz Duplaga, Agata Sobecka-Wajdzik

Teledentistry is a form of providing dental services with the application of ICT technologies. Teledentisry is of special significance when a primary care physician or any other primary dental service provider need support from a specialist. It uses similar tools and interaction scenarios to the ones used in other areas of telemedicine and e-health such as the contact in synchronic or store-and-forward modes. The use of modern technologies in oral cavity healthcare can have a great significance for remote populations, groups isolated from bigger urban centers or groups that are at risk of poverty or other deprivations. The results of the current research show that teledentistry can be used in various areas of dental medicine, including orthodoncy, endodency or even for major dental surgery planning. However, the effectiveness of teledentistry solutions depends mainly on the care system that is available in a country or region.
