If you are a researcher and need Danish health data for your research, you can apply for register data via the Danish Health Data Authority’s Research Services.
The Danish Health Data Authority’s Research Services supports health research in Denmark by providing access to and advising on the use of register-based health data.
Research Services provides access to data via The Secure Research Platform, which gives remote online access to data from the national health registers in a secure environment.
If you are a researcher or an organisation based outside of Denmark and wish to apply for access to Danish health data, please be aware that we only allow data access to a Danish authority responsible for data control. We therefore always recommend collaborating with a Danish research institution that can take on data responsibility and issue the common secure login, NemID, which is required to access The Secure Research Platform.
In addition to collaborating with a Danish research institution, there are a number of requirements that must be met in order to obtain access to data. The requirements are described below for different types of studies to help guide you before entering a collaboration with a Danish organisation responsible for data control.
