Written answers (Question to Health)

In accordance with GDPR and HIQA recommendations, a data protection impact assessment must be conducted when the implementation of a national electronic patient summary commences. However, this project has not yet been initiated by the HSE. Further engagement with the public and stakeholders will also be required upon commencement.
