  • A register of users, where information about each user’s identity is kept;
  • A register of providers, where information about health and social services professionals is kept;
  • A register of bodies, where information about bodies and facilities that provide health and social services is kept;
  • A register of refusals that is used to manage refusals to allow information to be released through the DSQ.
