The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has launched a new survey into the types of medical devices currently being used across the healthcare sector in the UK, including in the NHS. The ICO wants to know how these devices impact on the collection and use of personal data. The results of the survey will be used by the ICO’s audit team to determine when to conduct an audit of, or undertake an advisory visit to, a relevant healthcare organisation.
