Data governance and Clinical risk management

One of the aspects related to the management of health data and their use to define the actions to be put in place to ensure the greater safety of the patient concerns the organizational structure and management of health risk that requires to prepare preventive and corrective actions especially in situations of health emergency. This activity of prevention and management of health risk is generally traced back to a primary interest of the NHS as it allows greater appropriateness in the use of available resources and guarantees the protection of the patient in the implementation of the collective dimension of the right to health in its “preventive” and “prospective” shape. However, from a “restorative” and “retrospective” perspective, it also introduces the issue of possible interest in the knowledge of data by third parties and therefore imposes further reflections even in the face of a case law that in fact seems to exclude a position legitimizing access by citizens.
