Main Tent Speakers

Whose Data Is It Anyway?

Today, more than ever, human data are highly valued. Companies are acquired not on multiples of revenue but on multiples of the size of their data sets. For health data, there is even stricter regulation. Organizations that invest in the collection and storage of data may believe that the data belongs to them; people who are the source of the data may feel that the data are theirs and they deserve a return on its monetization. A data relationship between a medical device company, hospital, and patient may be even more complicated. Beyond the privacy concerns expressed around search and social media, there are new regulations such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that argue that the right to privacy is fundamental yet may complicate or hinder the ability to do large research at scale.

This session will aim to get to the core problem of who owns the data, touching on these aspects, and with perspectives from big tech/consumer companies, EHR vendors, medical device and remote monitoring companies, startups, and patients.
