Shared Medical Record System (DCC)
In accordance with France’s “Cancer Plan 1”, the Onco-Occitanie network has set up a shared medical record system for cancer patients (Dossier Communicant en Cancérologie – DCC, CNIL authorization n°1110668). A shared medical record is a secure, computer file containing all the information relating to a patient’s treatment. The system is used throughout the former Midi-Pyrénées Region.
Computerizing your medical record makes it easier for the healthcare professionals looking after you to share and exchange information, and thereby helps them optimize the quality and continuity of the treatment you receive. Access to your information is protected by strict confidentiality rules and security procedures, so your shared medical record can be accessed only by ethically bound healthcare professionals within the network. All access requests and actions relating to your file are tracked. Computerized information, other than personal identifying information, may be used to carry out statistical evaluations of procedures. In addition, the Oncomip network may forward information required for the epidemiological surveillance of tumoral diseases to the Registre du Tarn, the organization responsible for epidemiological surveillance in the region.
On presenting legitimate grounds, you may opt out from having your data computerized and processed automatically. In addition, you have the right to access the contents of your medical file and any details about you that are provided to evaluation bodies. To exercise this right, you must apply in writing, either directly or via a professional writing on your behalf, to:
