Research into new forms of care for complex chronic diseases requires substantial efforts in the collection, storage, and analysis of medical data. Additionally, providing practical support for those who coordinate the actual care management process within a diversified network of regional service providers is also necessary. For instance, for stroke units, rehabilitation partners, ambulatory actors, as well as health insurance funds. In this paper, we propose the concept of comprehensive and practical receiver-oriented encryption (ROE) as a guiding principle for such data-intensive, research-oriented case management systems, and illustrate our concept with the example of the IT infrastructure of the project STROKE OWL.
