The Administrative Litigation of the Data-Base of the Health Insurance: Conflict between Medical Research and Information Privacy
National Health Insurance Administration in Ministry of Health and Care had offered information about health insurance to Ministry of Health and Care and the National Health Research Institutes (NHRI), in order to use it adequately. A non-government organization appealed in May, 2012 to send legal attest letters to ask stopping providing any information about health insurance to a third party as a reaction. Furthermore, an administrative lawsuit against National Health Insurance Administration was filed. This article would analyze judgments of the remand in Taipei Administrative Court and the judgment in Supreme Administrative Court to clarify the legal issues and explain whether Personal Information Protection Act could be the foundation of the legitimacy to contract a large data bank and how the interpretation no. 603 be applied in this case.
