Comments to Federal Trade Commission on Patient-Generated Health Data
This spring, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) hosted a seminar on consumer generated and controlled health data. In response to a request for public comment, the Center for Data Innovation argues that given the wealth of opportunities that may be possible from patient-generated health data, policymakers should be cautious about imposing unnecessary regulations on this data. Instead, policymakers should identify opportunities to promote data sharing and encourage the emerging industry around patient-generated health data to grow.
