For proper treatment it is necessary that I, as your treating therapist, submit a medical file. This is also a legal obligation imposed by the Dutch Law. Your file contains your name and address, date of birth, prescribed products / remedies, notes about your health status and information about the examinations and treatments performed.
I handle your personal and medical information with care, in order to guarantee your privacy. As your treating therapist, I have sole access to the data in your file. I have a legal confidentiality obligation (professional secrecy).
The data from your file can also be used for the following purposes:
To inform other healthcare providers, for example when the therapy has been completed or when referring to another practitioner. This only happens with your explicit permission.
A small part of the data from your file is used for financial administration, so that I can prepare an invoice.
If for any other reason I want to use your data, I will first inform you and explicitly request your permission.
This data in the client file is retained for 15 years, as required by the Dutch law on the treatment agreement.
