Article 49, Access to electronic health data from a single data holder, Articles of the European Health Data Space (EHDS), (Proposal_3.5.2022)
1. Where an applicant requests access to electronic health data only from a single data holder in a single Member State, by way of derogation from Article 45(1), that applicant may file a data access application or a data request directly to the data holder. The data access application shall comply with the requirements set out in Article 45 and the data request shall comply with requirements in Article 47. Multi-country requests and requests requiring a combination of datasets from several data holders shall be adressed to health data access bodies.
2. In such case, the data holder may issue a data permit in accordance with Article 46 or provide an answer to a data request in accordance with Article 47. The data holder shall then provide access to the electronic health data in a secure processing environment in compliance with Article 50 and may charge fees in accordance with Article 42.
3. By way of derogation from Article 51, the single data provider and the data user shall be deemed joint controllers.
4. Within 3 months the data holder shall inform the relevant health data access body by electronic means of all data access applications filed and all the data permits issued and the data requests fulfilled under this Article in order to enable the health data access body to fulfil its obligations under Article 37(1) and Article 39.
