In the age of digital communication, more and more data is being collected. This technological opportunity can bring considerable benefits, also in the health sector.
Healthcare professionals can share information about a patient more easily, which facilitates and improves the medical care received. During all our interactions with the health system and the individual care we receive, we leave behind data that can have a "second life". This secondary use is regulated and the security of our health data is ensured.
Health data can be reused in many ways, such as through research to improve the quality of treatment and care received in cancer management, as shown in our second video below.
