Guides for data access and approvals –
New data providers on the Guidance function’s websitee

In May, the Guidance Function released a new feature on our website, Guides for data access and approvals, with the purpose of creating an overview of the requirements and process steps involved in applying for health data and approvals and thus help researchers, clinicians and other stakeholders to gain access to health data or obtain approvals.

Since then we have received more guides for data access from several data providers and the website now contains guides for data access for the following data providers:

  • Bio- and Genome Bank Denmark (RBGB)
  • The Danish Clinical Quality Program – National Clinical Registries (RKKP)
  • The Danish National Archives
  • The Danish Health Data Agency

You can find our guides in the following link: Guide to data access and approvals | Vejledningsfunktionen

Guides for data access and approvals will be updated with new data providers as we receive feedback from those we have been in contact with. If you have not been contacted by the Guidance Function, but think that your organisation would be suitable on the website, please contact the Guidance Function at

We hope that this initiative can help to create a comprehensive overview of the various application processes and thus contribute to simplifying access to health data.

The guidance function would once again like to thank all the various data suppliers and legal agencies who have contributed to this initiative.

The Guidance Function services are free for both public and private clinicians and researchers, Danish as well as foreign.
