Data-Driven Innovation Guiding Digital Health in the NHS

  • Inform and develop health and social care policy
  • Plan and commission health and care services
  • Take steps to better protect public health
  • Enable research, and provide individual care in exceptional cases
  • Protect the confidentiality and privacy of individuals
  • Respect the terms of consent by individuals who are involved in research
  • Be consistent with relevant legal, ethical, and regulatory frameworks
  • Guard against unreasonable costs
  • Anonymous Data: All patient identifiable features such as name, address, etc. would be removed prior to addition to the database
  • Confidentiality: Since only anonymous data would be shared with third parties, it would maintain patient privacy
  • Opt-Out Facility: Citizens can opt out of the system by contacting their GP or avail of the National Data Opt-Out facility
  • Data Sharing: Data will only be accessible to research or health organisations with legitimate needs (Clinical research, Med-tech innovation etc.) who meet stringent criteria
  • Non-Commercial Use: Database strictly not for use by insurance or marketing services, sales, market research or advertising
  • Data Access Request Service (DARS) can offer clinicians, researchers, and commissioners the data required to help improve NHS services
  • Data Sharing Agreement (DSA) with research partners for R&D collaborations or clinical performance studies for Pseudonymous data
  • Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) process to help NHS Trusts identify and minimise the data protection risks of a project
  • Data Security and Protection Toolkit (DSPT) is an online self-assessment tool for partner organisations to measure their performance against the National Data Guardian’s 10 data security standards
