What are the special requirements in health data protection?
According to Art. 9 (1) of the General Data Protection Regulation, health data are "special categories of personal data". These data are to be classified as "particularly worthy of protection" and processing is generally prohibited. However, so-called permissions in the GDPR lift this prohibition, which means that the processing of health data is permissible in exceptional cases. The special requirements in data protection management now lie, on the one hand, in limiting the actual data processing to the permissible circumstances and, on the other hand, in demonstrating at all times how the protection goals according to Art. 5 GDPR are achieved for the sensitive health data.
