Integrate, extend, and simplify security and compliance.

Security and Compliance offerings from Microsoft and our partners help protect your ICT infrastructure, enabling security-enhanced, contextual, and user-centric access from virtually anywhere.* Protection features, access, and management—all built around user identity and integrated with a security-enhanced, interoperable platform—help you manage risk and achieve your strategic goals.

Increase protection to deliver security-enhanced access from virtually anywhere*

A comprehensive, user-centric approach to security and compliance management helps protect health data by providing in-depth defense across multiple layers, while delivering security-enhanced, common identity-based access for your mobile workforce, patients, and citizens. Protection features and access are delivered in the context of a user’s identity and scale seamlessly across an ever-changing technology landscape, including virtual and cloud-based environments.

Integrate and extend security features across your organisation

Built-in infrastructure security features work across multiple platforms and environments. Integration across the layers helps you get more value from your existing investments. This interoperable and integrated security-enhanced platform helps you stay current with organisational security technologies, compliance policies, and health industry regulatory requirements.

Simplify the security experience, manage compliance

Help simplify deployment of, centrally manage, and deliver contextual and user-centric security features aligned to the needs of health professionals, patients, and citizens so they can quickly and easily access and use security-enhanced applications and information.

Accelerate planning and delivery of health solutions

These offerings are enabled by the Microsoft® Connected Health Platform (CHP), which is the implementation of the Connected Health Framework (CHF) Architecture and Design Blueprint on the Microsoft platform. The CHF provides a collection of vendor-agnostic best practices and guidelines to help build service- and standards-based, interoperable e-health solutions that are efficient, security-enhanced, flexible, and scalable and that support the full continuum of care to meet the needs of patients and citizens, health professionals, and organisations.

Based on the extensible and agile principles of the CHF, Microsoft CHP provides offerings for optimising health information and communication technology, including prescriptive architecture, design, and deployment guidance; tools; and solution accelerators. Microsoft CHP is primarily built on a foundation of application platform technologies and services, as well as generic Microsoft infrastructure optimisation models and tools, tailored for the health environment, enabling the delivery and management of solutions on-premises, in the cloud, or as a hybrid of both.
