The healthcare sector is currently subject to the strictest data protection regulations of any other sector. The General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) entered into force on 24th May 2016 and shall become effective on 25th May 2018. It includes many strong requirements for both privacy and security of sensitive personal information. GDPR also includes severe penalties for non-compliance of up to 4% of worldwide annual turnover. Ralitsa Gougleva, Senior Associate at DGKV, explores what the GDPR shall mean for those collecting and handling health data, and examines a number of the provisions and themes that impact the use of health data. She was invited by the NGO Links to speak at a dedicated panel at the "Between Sofia and Oslo: Health data analysis" conference to be held today in Serdica Hall at Sofia Hotel Balkan.
