The Perks Of Data Sharing

The Perks Of Data Sharing | Health and Biomedical Informatics | Scoop.it
Data sharing is no longer a question of ‘why’, but rather of ‘when’ and ‘how’. The access to biomedical research data is both a critical requirement and concern …

Sandy Gilchrist's curator insight, April 17, 4:30 AM
The issue with data sharing is privacy.  As the FCC policy stated last week, just because an individual has provided their data to you, you don't have the god-given right to then exploit that data for your own ends... "privacy raping," as I like to call it.  You invite someone to your apartment, you show them around, but you don't expect to have sex with them - the problem is they do.  That's what's happening in today's world.  Privacy raping.  When it comes to health records, these are allegedly going for up to $1,5000 on the black market.  The question is what are they going for in the commercial market.  How often is your data being shared, and with whom?  Who are these pimps that are exploiting your privacy for their own ends?  The answer is almost any organisation that can make money from doing so, collaborating with other organisations, including government, universities, researchers, big pharma, etc.  Sure, they may argue "it's ultimately for your benefit."  And that's fine, but let me be the master of my own destiny, thanks very much - let me decide if you can have access to my data... it's not your decision to decide that, in the same way as it's not your decision to decide if I have sex with you (or anyone else).  That's why LifeBank exists, to protect individual's data and their privacy.  It also protects organisations from data protection breaches.  It allows data sharing to sit symbiotically between individuals and organisations, fitting all current Cloud models and business processes.  LifeBank protects privacy - follow us on scoop.it and @NomadSquire on Twitter and read our blog www.lifebanksystems.wordpress.com

A Look at the Digital Medicine of the Future

A Look at the Digital Medicine of the Future | Health and Biomedical Informatics | Scoop.it
In the future, there may be medication that is tailored individually to each patient. Doctors might operate wearing 3D data glasses and thus be able to work with greater precision. Diagnosing rare diseases, which today can still take years, could be done in a matter of days. And we might even have therapies to combat mental illnesses such as schizophrenia. Scientists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) are researching new digitally-assisted methods of treatment and approaches on how to handle big data in medicine - initial results are already being implemented in the operating theater.
