GPDR

For a good treatment it is necessary that we, as a therapist, create a file. This is also a statutory obligation imposed by the WGBO. Your file contains notes about your state of health and data about the examinations and treatments performed. The file can also include data that is necessary for your treatment and which we have requested from another healthcare provider, for example from the general practitioner, after your explicit consent. We do our best to ensure your privacy. This means, among other things, that we: 

 

  • handle your personal and medical data carefully

  • ensure that unauthorized persons do not have access to your data. 

 

As a therapist we are the only person who has access to the data in your file. We have a legal duty of confidentiality (professional secrecy). 

 

The data from your file can also be used for the following purposes: 

  • To inform other health care providers, for example when the therapy has been completed, or when referring to another therapist. This only happens with your explicit permission. 

  • For use for observation, during absence.

  • For use during peer review (the data used is anonymous). 

  • A small part of the data from your file is used for the financial administration, so that we can make an invoice. 

 

If we want to use your data for another reason, we will first inform you and explicitly ask for your permission. The data in the client's file will be kept for 15 years as required by the law on the treatment agreement.
