1 Background and scope
Feelgood ("Feelgood", "we", "us") offers a complete selection of healthcare and working environment services to organizations all over Sweden. The customers are found in a variety of industries, both within the private and public sectors. Feelgood also provides services to physical persons.
In Sweden the processing of personal data is regulated by the EU's General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") and the supplementing Data Protection Act (2018:218). For healthcare providers, additional supplementary regulation can be found in the Patient Data Act (2008:355). Feelgood is therefore subject to all three regulations.
2 Why and how are we processing personal data?
As a healthcare provider we are obliged to process personal data about our patients in order to comply with the requirements in the Patient Data Act. Furthermore, some personal data is necessary to process in order for us to conduct our business activities in an effective manner, such as for the performance of a contract that we have entered into with our business customers or directly with the individuals. If we do not have access to this personal data, it may prevent us from entering into contracts or fulfilling our obligations under existing contracts.

For medical notes, the Patient Data Act applies. These notes are locked (signed) and cannot be changed or deleted. In general you, as a patient, have the right to request extracts from your medical record and its access logs. If you as a patient consider data in your medical record to be inaccurate, the healthcare provider may enter a rectification into the medical journal. A rectification is a note that refers to the inaccurate data and provides the accurate information. Both the original note and the rectification note remain in the medical journal. The foregoing applies provided that the patient and the healthcare provider agree that the note shall be rectified. In situations where the healthcare service provider and the patient disagree concerning the correctness of the medical record or where the patient requests destruction of the medical journal, the patient may file a request to the supervisory authority the Health and Social Care Inspectorate ("IVO"), Sw: Inspektionen för vård och omsorg. After IVO has made a decision, the medical journal is rectified or deleted in accordance therewith.
