Patient data of the deceased

Data in patient documents remains confidential after the patient dies. Data regarding the treatment of a deceased person may be disclosed in certain specific occasions upon written request. These specific occasions include determining or implementing an important benefit, advantage or right (to determine the validity of a person's last will, for example), or to determine the risk of a genetic disease.

To request access to patient data of a deceased patient, please fill out the form "Hakemus vainajan tietojen luovuttamiseksi" (available in Finnish and Swedish). To facilitate the process, be specific and list all arguments you have for requesting access to this information.
