Patient information

The Medical Informatics Initiative (MII) of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) pursues the goal of making routinely collected treatment data from health care usable for medical research and thus improving therapy, diagnosis and prevention options. The prerequisite is the informed consent of patients to the use of their data for research purposes. How does research actually work within the framework of the MII? What data is involved, how long is it stored and who uses it? How is data protection ensured and what happens in the event of a revocation?

You can find more information on the patient’s microsite of the Medical Informatics Initiative.

The link below refers to the broad consent including information for patients at the Münster site. All important questions about consent are explained here.
