Apparently, in healthcare, the new stipulation evolving - to encrypt the PHI data (no, not the disk - data) - so no one would be able to get the data in cleartext. I know, I know devs can decrypt the data if they have the right key to use for it. I am not here to debate about
of such requirement. I wonder if it would be possible to search for encrypted text? I am not sure what encryption mechanism will be used, perhaps the weakest one (due to no restriction from ISO on exactly how we have to do that).
By the way, the same requirement is imposed on DBMS(es). I know - perhaps all tech people should quit working for healthcare.... but there are always suckers like me to stay.
Many, many thanks in advance.
