3.6. Patient data
Clinerion’s Patient network Explorer (PNEx) queries a de-identified copy of a partner hospital’s electronic health record (EHR) database, unlinked from identifiers, and returns aggregated counts. The hospital’s EHR database is housed and fully under the control of the hospital’s IT department. As PNEx deals only with de-identified, unlinked patent data, this data does not fall under the scope of the European General Data Protection Regulation (2016).
Clinerion will maintain the data for as long as the data is required for the purposes mentioned above, until the individual withdraws consent or as long as it is necessary for legal purposes.
For Patient Network Explorer (PNEx) users
PNEx users may manage or withdraw their data consent directly through the system dashboard.
PNEx users can achieve this by deleting their account. For security reasons, enabling the sites to monitor who queried their patient data, detecting misuse of the system, we will keep the PNEx users’ Personal Data for one year after they delete their account. One year after they delete their account, all their Personal Data will be automatically removed from the system.
For Human Resources data
