@PDL I understand the nerves! This is a big change that affects a lot of what everyone is doing.
We have a lot of wheels turning right now to cover all aspects of GDPR compliance, and are discussing with Lawyers to get a better understanding of how the rules affect all aspects of Cliniko and the support we provide around it. Once those meetings are done and everything is more concrete, we’re going to put together a post to share with everyone. But even in the meantime we’re still working hard to get the aspects we know finalised.
@Emma Online bookings will definitely have to change, as we need to get explicit consent from the patient before collecting their information. That will likely come in the form of having multiple tickboxes, to agree to storing data in general (and appointment reminders), to agree to marketing emails, and possible others we decide to be necessary. I’m not 100% certain of how this will look when it’s completed though.
But yes, we will also need to include tools to ensure that data is not synced to mailchimp should the patient opt out of marketing.
We will likely create some reports for consent, though that may not be ready for the May 25th deadline. We’ll be sure to include consent in the data exports though, so even if we don’t have a report on it, you could still generate it yourself.
