We are happy to contribute to the “Management & Krankenhaus” issue Sep 2016. In our contribution, we introduce a data donation pass for patients. With the personal data donation pass, patients get fill access to their personal medical data so they can request and aggregate their data from individual participants in the healthcare system. Furthermore, patients get full control to manage access to their data, e.g. to share a de-identified subset of their data for a specific research project.
Back to school to understand the “Code of Life”. We are happy to invite you to “Code of Life” Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) hosted by openHPI.
