On 29 March, the French Federation Private Hospitals (FHP) organised a half-day of work and exchanges on EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the European reference text on personal data protection. This training was led by a lawyer specialized in new technology and the Correspondent for protection of personal data from Orpéa-Clinea private health group.
Both gave participants very practical keys on the implementation of the new obligations, in line with the peculiarities of our sector. About one hundred private clinic directors attended this training. This mobilisation reflects the importance of those issues and for our institutions of a good preparation as regard to this new regulatory system. Private hospitals are at the very heart of issues related to the production and usage of health data in the context of digital health development.
