CNIL Webinar: Data matching with the SNDS using the NIR – Tuesday, June 25 at 11 a.m.

Numerous research and study projects require data matched with the very rich data on healthcare consumption, particularly in towns and hospitals.

The French National Health Data System (SNDS) contains a vast amount of data on the health of the French population.

The identifier that most effectively matches the data collected by the data controller with the data in the SNDS is the NIR (répertoire identification number).

Its use is particularly closely supervised, and requires the utmost precaution in terms of storage, encryption and transmission to the health insurance company, which will then extract the data concerned.

It is to this end (or purpose) that the CNIL will be publishing new practical sheets, in collaboration with the CASD, detailing the various data matching circuits with the SNDS, to complement the CNIL’s practical guide published in December 2020.

More use cases are described, as well as a list of general principles to be respected when managing the NIR (retention, encryption, matching, deduplication, etc.).

CNIL, with the participation of CASD, is organizing a webinar to present these new practical information sheets on Tuesday June 25, 2024 at 11:00 am.

Registration opens on June 5 on this link.
