Die digitale Transformation mitgestalten — Der Datenspendeausweis: Souveräner Umgang mit persönlichen Gesundheitsdaten

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.
