  14. 14. Transparency is what lets the NHS trust us We use open source software to store patient data Data are verifiably encrypted at the patient level Each patient controls who else can decrypt the data If necessary, CIO could run the same software to store their patients’ data We can prove that we cannot misuse the data because we cannot even use the data
  15. 15. The NHS lets clinicians and patients trust us Only company inside NHS secure network that makes data available to patients outside Any patient can use any device they already own Patient can invite clinicians outside of the NHS Integration with existing NHS resources, e.g. NHS Choices and NHS Mail Even though no one cares / understands that we use open source software
