Code seeks to set out the “rules of engagement between industry and the health and care system”
The Department of Health and Social Care has updated and reissued their Code of conduct for data-driven health and care technology suppliers. The Code was first issued in September 2018 and aimed to set out the “rules of engagement between industry and the health and care system”
The Code is enshrined in 10 principles summarised as follows
Contrary to the claim in the official press release, this not a new code. It has simply been updated primarily by shortening and reordering the principles for the sake of clarity and changing references to GDPR to the Data Protection Act 2018.
The updated Code can be found on the Gov.uk website.
