data consent review response

The NHS is to get a funding boost for cybersecurity measures, while the UK government has promised patients a digital service that lets them see who's accessed their health records. The commitments are part of its response to two reviews into patient data – one from the National Data Guardian for health and care, Fiona Caldicott, and one from the Care Quality Commission – that were published last year. wrote:

this is where it became interesting another care data system

Clarity on consent The government also announced plans to help people understand how, why and when their data is being used.
By December 2018 it plans to have a digital service for people to see who has accessed their summary care record, and, by March 2020, an online service for people to see how their data is being used for purposes other than direct care.
There will also be a simpler consent and opt-out model that offers more clarity on how personal information will be used outside of direct care, and when data sharing is a legal requirement.
The new approach will be phased in, with all patients who have already registered a type one opt-out (which objects to identifiable data being shared outside of their GP) honoured until 2020.
Those with a type two opt-out (which says people don't want identifiable data to be shared beyond NHS Digital) will be helped to transfer over, the government said. wrote:
