General description of the application HD4DP v1

Last updated: 2021-11-11 16:59

The HD4DP application enables data providers to collect data.

The medical and professional secret is protected at various levels and through principles such as encoding, encryption, and user-acces management. The combination of these elements guarantees so-called "end-to-end security". 

During the data collection process, which is done by this application, all data is securely (= anonymized) transferred to Sciensano, with the use of e-health box:

  • The data provider never receives the coded identifiers
  • eHealth has never access to medical data or metadata
  • never receives the original identifier, but can reconcile different entries
