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
- Healthdata.be never receives the original identifier, but can reconcile different entries
