Session Abstract – PMWC 2019 Silicon Valley
Session Synopsis: US and EU patients have legal rights to their health information and patient data sharing is seen as key to transforming treatment and powering medical discoveries. Medicare incentivizes hospitals and physicians to share data with patients. But even with laws and financial incentives, patient data sharing is still too rare. This panel of representatives from healthcare organizations and patients will explore regulatory and other obstacles to patient data sharing and engage the audience in a discussion about how to overcome these obstacles.
