From a cross-party agreement on reforming organ donation is not because the government Karen Millen
wants to pass on patient information without their consent. Greens and Left Party fear the commercialization of the data.
With the cross-party consensus on the reform of organ donation, it is now nothing. After Tagesspiegel Greens and Left Party-information of the contemplated changes in transplant Protection Act are not in parliament on Friday to agree. Both groups offended by a passage in the bill that personal data may be passed on organ donors without consent for research purposes at the pharmaceuticals industry.
Paragraph 14 of the Bill allows unauthorized data disclosure when "outweighs the public interest in carrying out the research project, the legitimate interests of the person concerned and not to achieve the research purpose is otherwise."
In this way, probably came "highly sensitive information" about organ donors and recipients, such as about their lifestyle or their medical history, in the hands of the industry, criticized the Green Party politician Elizabeth Scharfenberg. Many donated for altruistic reasons and were not willing to share their data for research purposes, said left-expert Kathrin Vogler.
The health ministry rejected the concerns.Karen Millen Dresses It does not go to the commercialization of data, a spokeswoman said. However, there is a strong interest in the sometimes serious side effects to reduce the life-long medication to be taken after transplantation by more research. Personal data will only be passed if "neither the anonymity nor the solicitation of consent impossible", according to a statement from the Federal Government, the Tagesspiegel present. The use of data for purely commercial purposes would be "impossible". But this was not for research projects that "commercial interests are also pursued" at the same time.
It is irresponsible to the citizens' trust in the donation as "continue to gamble," said Green MEP Harald terpene. He recalled that this trust by the events surrounding the German Organ Transplantation Foundation (DSO) "already shaken" is.Karen Millen After being accused of nepotism and mismanagement of Business Board of the Foundation have already had to resign. To fundamental reform or reorganization of the organ donation system, but there is not - even if Union, SPD and FDP, the rights of control of funds, hospitals and medical associations on the fly will still increase with an amendment.
It is annoying that you can not use the opportunity to be a real structural reform, said Scharfenberg. And Kathrin Vogler has "profound reflection on appropriate structures for the organization of organ transplantation to be absolutely necessary." Through the rush with which they are to incur the law, proved to Union, SPD and FDP, the organ donation "a disservice".
As far as the Left, which wants to reject the bill on Friday completely,Karen Millen Dress like the Greens are not. They put themselves in the health committee established solely on abstention. And then it concerns only the Transplantation Act. It commits all major hospitals to employ agents and transplantation to optimize the processes for organ donation. In addition to people who have relatives or friends to donate an organ alive, be better off social legislation
About the project to confront the future of every citizen aged 16 and over at regular intervals with the question of his willingness to donate organs, is voted on separately on Friday - and not by political groups, but in a free conscience. But even here, the consensus is fragile. The green does not suit that health staff should be entitled to the requested their readiness to enter on their own insured health card. And at the left, a majority has already announced that agree across party developed application group for data protection reasons not to want.
