Law’s Sharona Hoffman explains how usage agreements could impact debate around patient data

Oxford professor calls for European ethical codes on patient data
The Guardian: Sharona Hoffman, the Edgar A. Hahn Professor of Law and professor of bioethics, explained how usage agreements for patient data could help in the debate between privacy and the social benefits of shared medical information. She said it would help if the agreements stated how “the data will be used, who will see the data, and how it will be discarded after use as well as to commit to safeguarding data security and refraining from attempts to re-identify data.”
