GDPR – Don’t Be Paralysed by the Implications: Get Excited by the Opportunity!

As everyone involved in the collection, protection, storage and use of personal data is well aware, The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into effect May 25, 2018. Many healthcare organisations are wrestling with compliance and establishing a cohesive and rigorous response to the challenges. Although the new GDPR applies to all domains of the public and private sectors, some specific derogations are defined for data concerning health. That is aimed at protecting the rights of data subjects and confidentiality of their personal health data, whilst preserving the benefits of processing data, including digital images for research and public health purposes. Therefore, the implications are wide-ranging and are not merely confined to the IT Departments and Freedom of Information custodians – they span all clinical and support departments that interact with patients and carers.

There is an alternative perspective, however, that adherence to the requirements should not be seen merely from the standpoint of avoiding punitive fines or reputational damage caused by data breaches or loss, but as a unique opportunity to identify where, why and how data is collected, stored, protected and secured.

The GDPR offers a tremendous opportunity for healthcare organisations to maximise the real value of data in the delivery of patient care.
