These webinars are designed to provide decision-making support to assist GPs and practice teams in deciding whether it is appropriate to release de-identified healthcare data at the request of an external organisation.
Relevance to General Practice
In health care, the primary source of data is through clinical care delivery to patients. When this data is used outside of the general practice setting, for purposes other than which it was originally collected, it is referred to as 'secondary use of data'. Secondary use of data includes activities such as research, quality and safety measurement, provider certification or accreditation and marketing.
General practice data has become a highly valued commodity and practices need to think carefully about the worth of their data and the intended purpose of the secondary use.
