What are my rights?
Accessing your patient records
As a patient you have the right to access the information contained in your patient records. You also have the right to obtain a copy of all or part of your patient records.
Correcting or erasing personal data
If you have a different opinion with regard to the content of your patient records, or consider information to be incorrect, you have the right to have this entered into your patient records. To have information erased from your patient records, you need to contact the Health and Social Care Inspectorate (IVO) at www.ivo.se to have this reviewed.
Get access to your medical records
Every time your patient records are opened this is logged. As a patient, you are able to receive an extract from the log, in other words a list of who has looked at your data.
Blocking information in your patient records
Before the data is made available to other healthcare providers through coordinated patient record keeping, you must be informed about what that involves. Note that in this context, for another healthcare provider to process your data will require your consent. If you do not want other healthcare providers to electronically access your patient records, you can request that access be completely or partially blocked. If that is the case the consequences for your healthcare must be explained to you. For example, you must tell healthcare staff yourself what they need to know in order to provide you with good, safe care. You should also be aware that this block can only be put in place for electronic patient records, not those that are just available on paper.
Object to the processing of data
You have the right to object to certain types of personal data processing that we undertake in accordance with public interest disclosure. In that case you must specify what processing you object to.
