National Healthcare Guide, 22 April 2014: 'Nationwide action for more personal control of medical data'
"Patients should have more control over their own medical data and be able to decide for themselves who can see their patient records. That is the opinion of the Civil Rights Protection Foundation, which together with the Privacy First Foundation launched an internet campaign for medical privacy. The Telegraph reports.
When a patient gives permission to share his medical data, for example with the National Switch Point LSP (formerly SPD), his data often becomes accessible to many healthcare providers. These can access the medical record without prior checking by the patient or his doctor.
Therefore, to regain control of medical records with patients and their own doctors, the website www.specifieketoestemming.nl launched. Through the website, people can send a letter to their doctor or pharmacist, indicating the extent to which medical data may be shared."
