I am very excited to share that Kevin Patrick (UCSD/Calit2) and I will be leading the Health Data Exploration project’s new efforts to advance the use of of personal data for public health research.
Our recent report, “Personal Data for the Public Good,” found that many people who track health-related data are interested in sharing that data with researchers in medical and public health — provided adequate privacy controls exist. We are building a Network to bring together companies that collect and store personal health data, researchers who mine these data, and other strategic partners. Through a set of research projects using personal health data, the Network will identify policies and best practices for using these new forms of data to produce transformative knowledge about health.
More details are available on our project website: http://hdexplore.calit2.net or in our press release.
