Additionally, the data about your disorders, examinations, and treatments will also be recorded in the electronic medical record.
In the context of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Eisenhower Clinic would like to inform you about the way in which your data will be handled. Please see the most important points below.
What is the purpose of the registration?

Whom your data will be shared with
Sometimes a good treatment demands us to share your data with others. These others might be facilities carrying out certain examinations (like MRI-scans or blood tests) or part of a treatment (for instance a hospital or clinic carrying out surgery). In addition, it is common that your GP, physiotherapist, or another healthcare professional involved in your treatment is well informed. Your data will remain within the European Union.
How long will my data be saved?
Initially your data will be saved for 15 years. In specific cases a longer term is possible.
What are my rights?
Everyone who has their data registered has the right to see these data, to make corrections, additions, to have data removed or to receive a transcript of the files.
Am I obliged to provide data?
Based on legal statutory provisions you are obliged, as a patient, to provide Eisenhower Clinic with certain data. In the event that you do not comply with this, it is not possible to be registered or treated as a patient at Eisenhower Clinic.
