What is SPESiOR®?

SPESiOR® (Secure Processing Environment by ESiOR) is an audited and Valvira-certified Secure Operating Environment, which provides an all-in-one solution for collecting, analysing, and storing social, health, and other sensitive data. SPESiOR® is compliant with the Finnish Act on the Secondary Use of Health and Social Data, as well as Findata’s requirements, so it can be used for purposes that require a high standard of information security. Additionally, we have created a secure tool for data collection, such as registry and follow-up studies. 

SPESiOR® was created on a foundation of diverse expertise and experience

ESiOR’s long experience in various customer projects, registry research, market access services, and health economics, as well as the views of IT experts, have been channelled to develop this new digital service. ESiOR has created a solution that facilitates data utilisation and enables the use of data at different stages of its life cycle. SPESiOR® brings a complete solution to the customer’s different needs because now ESiOR can offer both research support and consulting as well as a secure solution for different use cases.

SPESiOR® complies with the legislation

As of May 1, 2022, the Finnish law on the secondary use of social and health data requires a secure operating environment for data processing. Secondary use of data can be, for example, research, statistics, development, and innovation activities or knowledge management. The purpose of the law is to increase data security and safeguard the protection of an individual’s personal data. SPESiOR® is an enabler of new insights into impact research.

SPESiOR® is an all-in-one solution for different customer needs

In addition to data transfer, processing, analysis, and archiving, SPESiOR includes the ability to securely collect data for a variety of purposes, including surveys, patient data collection, risk sharing, and clinical trials. The experience of dozens of projects and aspects of impact research have been taken into account in the development of the data collection tool.
