Introduction and objective: The article discusses the organizational standards for providing medical teleconsultations, including patient identification, confidentiality rules and the use of technical measures to secure patient data, regulated by the Ordinance of the Minister of Health of 12 August 2020 on the organizational standard for teleconsultations in primary healthcare. The relationship between these standards and the personal data protection regulations established by Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation), was discussed. Material and methods: The study uses the methods of legal science: the dogmatic and theoretical-legal approach. The analysis included normative acts, recommendations, and guidelines in the field of personal data protection, as well as scientific studies and literature. Results: As a result of this analysis, the thesis that the basic organizational requirements for medical teleconsultation are not sufficient to maintain all requirements for the protection of personal data was verified. Conclusions: Since the mandatory organizational standard for teleconsultations defined by law is not sufficient for the protection of personal data, teleconsultations should be organized in accordance with the above-standard requirements compared to those provided for by the legislator. It is also worth using codes of conduct approved by the President of the Personal Data Protection Office.
