Résumé

The article investigates the issue of knowing whether or not the proposal for a general data protection regulation could improve the patient's safety. This has been analyzed through the four main contributions that should be expected at least from data protection to the patient's safety. In our view, data protection should help supporting efficient information systems in healthcare, increasing data quality, strengthening the patient's rights and drawing the legal framework for performing quality control procedures. Compared to the current legal framework, it is not sure that the proposal might improve any of these contributions to the patient's safety.
