After health data warehouses, the CNIL is launching a public consultation on a draft repository relating to pharmacies. Only “ hard ” pharmacies are concerned, not online ones.
This reference system helps these pharmacies to bring their health data processing into line with the GDPR.
“ Personal data processing must be carried out in full transparency vis-à-vis the persons concerned ” reminds the authority. “ Thus, from the stage of collecting personal data, people must be informed of the methods of processing their data “. The CNIL pleads for a display in the pharmacy or a specific document.
An information obligation whose respect is sometimes more than insufficient, as a recent issue of Cash Investigation had pinned on the links between pharmacies and the company IQVIA.
