Recertification of Siemens Healthineers’ cloud platform “teamplay”

Siemens Healthineers were once again awarded the EuroPriSe seal for the cloud-based teamplay applications.

Teamplay enables hospitals and other medical facilities to monitor the utilization efficiency of their medical imaging devices as well as the radiation dose. This helps them to improve their image acquisition procedures and to ensure that radiation doses are as low as reasonably possible to meet clinical needs. Furthermore, teamplay offers an easy and secure means to exchange medical images. The platform provides web-based services and a software-only gateway (the “teamplay receiver”) acting as an intermediary between hospital systems and the web-based services.

The seal for teamplay had first been issued in 2016. In early 2019, the first recertification was granted. The current recertification included the evaluation of new components and features that had been added to teamplay since the previous recertification. More precisely, the recertification particularly covered the applications teamplay Dose, Usage, Protocols, Images and Store, which had already been subject to the previous recertification, and the new applications teamplay Insights, Reports and Mammo Dashboard.

The re-evaluation was performed by EuroPriSe Legal and Technical Expert Dr. Irene Karper. It took place on the basis of the EuroPriSe Criteria Catalogue for IT-products and IT-based Services v201701. The evaluator concluded that teamplay continues to meet all applicable EuroPriSe requirements. All changes that had been made to the service since the previous recertification were taken into account during the re-evaluation.
