Ulovlig datahåndtering hos Statens Serum Institut: Holder ikke øje med databehandlereStatens Serum Institut (SSI) overfører danske sundhedsdata til databehandlere, men fører ingen kontrol med, at der faktisk bliver passet på dataen – og det er i strid med Persondataloven, som kræver, at der føres tilsyn.

Ny sensor gør det lettere at overvåge patienters hjerterytmeNår en person oplever uregelmæssigheder i hjerterytmen, kan det ikke altid opfanges ved en EKG på hospitalet.
