Understanding DPDP Act 2023: Patient Rights & Duties

Understanding DPDP Act 2023: Patient Rights & Duties


The Digital Personal Data Protection (DPDP) Act of 2023 is a vital legislation ensuring the privacy of patient data in Indian healthcare. Patients are granted essential rights, including data access, updates, and the right to nominate individuals for data access. They also have the right to grievance redressal. However, these rights must align with legal mandates such as those set by the National Medical Commission. Patients must also fulfill their duties by complying with the law, not impersonating others, providing authentic information, and avoiding frivolous complaints. This harmonious balance between rights and duties under the DPDP Act contributes to a secure and transparent healthcare data ecosystem.
