Editor’s note: This news brief has been updated to clarify Germany’s Karlsruhe Higher Regional Court’s decision to allow a Luxembourg-based U.S. subsidiary to process patient discharge data.
The Karlshrue Higher Regional Court overturned the Public Procurement Chamber of Baden-Württemberg's decision blocking hospitals from processing digital discharge management data by a U.S. subsidiary in Luxembourg. Per the decision, all data must be processed in Germany. The Public Procurement Chamber previously ruled the Luxembourg subsidiary was disqualified from bidding on the service because its U.S. ownership would constitute an illegal data transfer under the EU General Data Protection Regulation.
