In your medical history, only data related to your medical treatment will be processed. The medical history includes the personal information provided on the patient form, such as personal details, contact details and insurance details, as well as, among other things, the educational interview conducted as part of the treatment, collected health data such as medical histories. Diagnoses, therapy suggestions and findings.

Data transfers subject to consent

Basically, the data processing is based on the legal reason of the documentation of the medical history as well as the obligation to keep records and the invoicing including the collection. We only transfer your personal data and in particular your medical data to external third parties if this is permitted or required by law or if you have consented to the transfer of data in the course of your treatment.

The transfer of data to cantonal and national authorities (e.g. cantonal medical service, health departments, etc.) is based on legal reporting requirements.

The forwarding of the necessary patient and invoice data to the collection agency takes place for the purpose of collection.

Duration of storage

Your medical history is generally retained for 20 years after your last treatment. After that, it will be destroyed, subject to other agreements. In individual cases, depending on your treatment and your corresponding consent, data will be transferred to other authorized recipients (e.g. laboratories, other physicians, therapists).
