Global Data Hub – 3 / 17 观点
Personal health data attracts special protection but also benefits from exemptions under UK and EU data protection law. Have legislators and regulators got the balance between innovation and privacy right or do the rules overly restrict advances in healthcare provision and research? We look at some of the particular issues involved in processing health data - not least in identifying what it is and how it can be used. We focus on data transfers, cybersecurity and fair and lawful processing, as well as looking at guidance and proposals which aim to clarify existing law, and possibly revise or add to it in the near future.
