Careful storage of your medical data

Here you can read how GZA (Healthcare for Asylum Seekers) protects your personal and medical information.

Your medical data in HIS

Your (medical) data is digitally stored in the Family Doctor Information System (HIS). Only healthcare providers who are directly involved in your treatment can consult your data. This refers to family doctors, practice nurses, doctors' assistants, the POH-GGZ (Primary Care Assistant for Mental Healthcare) and employees of the Praktijklijn (Practice Line).  If you move to another asylum seekers' centre, your medical data will be accessible to the general practice of your new asylum seekers' centre.

The use of your medical data

Your data will be used to help you if you need care. In addition, GZA (Healthcare for Asylum Seekers) uses your personal data for financial administration purposes. Your data can be used anonymously for scientific purposes. When you request information or make a complaint, we also use your data in order to respond to you.

When do we collect your data?

We collect your data during consultations and telephone conversations. We also receive data from other healthcare providers when you have been referred.

Your data is stored securely

We have extensive organisational and technical security measures in place to protect your data.

Your rights

You can always ask your healthcare provider what is being done with your personal data. In addition, you also have various other rights:

  • Right of inspection and copy
  • Right of supplementation, correction, and protection
  • Right of removal and destruction
