Reform on European union data protection rules in modern medicine
Rapid technological developments and globalization have brought new challenges for the protection of personal data. The scale of the collection and sharing of personal data has increased significantly.
The right to the protection of personal data is not an absolute right and it must be considered in relation to its function in society and be balanced against other fundamental rights, in accordance with the principle of proportionality.
People shall be aware that disregard of the privacy and security of protected health information, confidential, personal or other sensitive information shall result in disciplinary action, up to and including dismissal.
