The medical data of a patient has the highest level of as it involves the most sensitive aspects of patient information. The majority of the countries have a very strict framework. In the case of Europe and the USA, they have two different laws for data protection, GDPR for European countries and HIPAA for the USA. Usually, clinics, gamete banks, or companies like us have to respect and adhere to these regulations. Having this in mind, we have developed Fenomatch.

If you use tools that are not developed specifically for this field, it can be problematic. Also, it is not mandatory but highly desirable to be certified. We, as a tool, have been certified with ISO 27001 assuring that the information and the data that we have is encrypted and secure.
