Documenting all the places
personal data goes.


Legend: with your name, without your name.
Click on a circle above for names of organizations and details of data shared.

The map describes places your personal data may go. The reference and the process starts when you visit a healthcare provider (e.g., a physician or hospital). While you might expect many of the data flows, such as to your retail pharmacy, others may surprise you.

Not every person is in every data sharing arrangement shown, but each arrow denotes a known sharing arrangement for some person's data
