The data donation pass is an innovative way for citizens taking care of their personal health. It enables easy sharing of personal health and fitness data with known third-parties, such as family members, physicians, and selected research projects whilst keeping full control of personal data. Learn more about the data donation pass for citizens and try it out.
We are happy to contribute to the “Plattform Life Sciences” issue March 2017 focusing on the digital transformation within the life sciences. In our contribution, we share latest details about our data donation pass for citizens. With its help, citizens get full access to their personal healthcare data so they can request and aggregate them from individual participants in the healthcare system and donate them for individual purposes. Thus, citizens are able to perform their right on information self-determination for the first time in an extensive way.
