Big Health Data: When Consent Is Not Enough
October 8, 2019 @ 1:05 pm - 1:50 pm
In 2019, India launched the National Digital Health Mission to ready India’s health data ecosystem for the technologies of the future. There is also an urgent need to make health data portable, without comprising security and privacy. At this talk, Rahul Matthan and Satchit Balsari will discuss the implications of global and regional jurisprudence on the generation, exchange, and application of health data in India: Is consent enough? Can health data be owned? How representative are health data in India? Who will benefit from big data? Who will be harmed?
Rahul Matthan (Author, Privacy 3.0: Unlocking our Data-Driven Future)
Satchit Balsari (Assistant Professor, Global Health and Population, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health)
