Patient rights

Patients must be informed about electronic prescriptions and Patient Data Repository in advance. The law also guarantees that patients are entitled to check the information stored on them. Patients also have the right to information as to where their medical records have been given between healthcare organisations.

There are some differences in the rights between electronic prescriptions and the Patient Data Repository. For the sake of clarity, patients' rights in electronic prescriptions and the Patient Data Repository are on their own respective subpages.

An exception is the Data Management Service, which in the future will be the repository of information, consents and refusals concerning electronic prescriptions, as well as other expressions of patients' wishes (e.g. living will) from the Patient Data Repository.  

At the moment, the Data Management Service contains the information, consents and refusals from the Patient Data Repository. That is why the section on the Data Management Service is currently situated under the Patient Data Repository.
