Control your own patient file

The patient is central. In legislation in the field of privacy and information security, patients have a set of rights aimed at exercising control over their own life/health and derived from this control over their own (personal) data. In social legislation the patient is asked to participate in social processes. As a result of these rights, organizations have a duty to facilitate these rights.

Health initiatives

In order to be in control of their own (personal data), a patient needs their own environment on a trusted network. This has been tried out in the pilots of the European Commission and worked out in the health sector in NEN7512 and the MedMijis appointment system. The own environment must be safe, the person must be able to reveal their identity under supervision, it must be possible to make conclusive agreements about sharing personal data with third parties, an electronic signature is required and the organization facilitating the trusted network must be able to identify with the person. accountable.

Personal Data Store by MYOBI

MYOBI, facilitates this in a Personal Data Store (PDS). What can the person in the role of patient, client and resident do with such a PDS and what is the added value for the care provider?

People can hold a PDS on the MYOBI trust network. The PDS provides authentication of the identity of the holder of the PDS, personal encryption of data and electronic signature based on a key pair. Personal and company data can be recorded in the PDS and the MYOBI Policy applies.

The patient at the center

Smart contracting is available to patients with an IBS. A contract portfolio for individuals is available. With the help of the contract portfolio, patients can make conclusive agreements with parties (individuals and organisations) about the sharing of personal data. These agreements are recorded in the patient’s PDS. The patient can make the appointments from different roles:

  • Healthcare employee: relates to entering into and fulfilling an employment contract or ZZP agreement;
  • Representative of a healthcare provider: relates to an offered and accepted task of representing an organization; and
  • Patient, client and resident: relates to a treatment agreement or specified (consent) agreement.

For a patient, the roles can also lie outside the healthcare domain.

What can healthcare providers with an PDS do?

The healthcare provider can ask the patient to use the PDS to unlock personalized company data. It is practical for the patient and reduces liability and cost risks for certain roles in healthcare.

For the organization, the disclosure of personalized company data in a PDS is attractive because the person treats his data in the PDS with care. The PDS contains the personal data plus the agreements that a patient has made with organisations.

We can support patients in obtaining a PDS. The professionals can indicate to healthcare providers what advantages there are for the organization to create a PDS for employees and patients.
