Privacy and opt-out for patients
GIANTT has a privacy and data protection policy according to the Dutch version of the European General Data Protection Regulation, i.e. the Algemene Verordening Gegevensbescherming (AVG). More information regarding this policy can be found here.
What does this involve for the general practice? Before (anonymous) patient data are delivered to GIANTT, the healthcare provider informs the patients with type 2 diabetes. In case of objections to the use of their data for scientific research, patients can notify the person that informed them who will document this ‘opt-out’ in the information system provided by Calculus/Proigia. This will ensure that the data are not forwarded to the GIANTT databank.
