Lithuanian Healthcare Ministry may be granted access to confidential patients’ data

DELFI / Audrius Solominas

Currently, data collection on certain persons’ health is fragmented – it is gathered for research purposes or when specific cases of a disease are examined. Based on the Law on Legal Protection of Personal Data, the procedure of grossing up would be non-personal and would not reveal sensitive private information.

The Ministry of Healthcare said the amendments were necessary in order to collect quality data about mortality, identify ineffective treatment methods and evaluate the effectiveness of preventative measures.
