Health Data and GDPR: Take Control of Your Health Data
Health is our most valuable asset and taking control of our health data can make a huge difference to our health outcomes.
Our health data is scattered among the clinics and hospitals we visited during our lifetime, and as a result our medical history is often incomplete when we attend a medical appointment, which can result in late diagnosis and poor treatment choices.
Did you know that you can compile and securely access all your health data within 30 days if you live in the EU or the UK?
Since the implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, in 2018, you only need to e-mail or call any employee of these clinics or hospitals to request a copy or the transfer of all your health data.
