We are witnessing a growing revolution around the provision of healthcare. Much is being driven by the proliferation of medical data and the technology that supports this. As the pressures on healthcare providers continue to escalate, the better collection, management and use of more patient-specific information provides a significant opportunity for innovation and change. The Future Agenda team made this, the Future of Patient Data, the focus of our major Open Foresight project for 2017/18 – 12 discussions across 11 countries, gathering views from over 300 experts.
This report shares the findings from the Future of Patient Data research project. It highlights several important emerging issues that are the source of major differences of opinion around the world. These include how to best accommodate rising data sovereignty concerns, the privatisation of health information and the growing value of health data. Some of the challenges and opportunities are technical in nature, but many are concerned with different ethical, philosophical and cultural approaches to health and how we treat the sick in society.Download full report

Future Agenda runs the world’s largest open foresight programme and provides strategic advice to leading organisations globally. In 2010 and 2015 we undertook major worldwide research leading hundreds of expert workshops across over 20 topics. The insights from these discussions have been shared in two major publications – ‘The World in 2020’ and ‘The World in 2025’.
Each year, the Future Agenda team undertakes in-depth global open foresight research projects on key themes of interest. In 2016 the focus was the Future of Cities. In 2017 it was the Future of Philanthropy and the Future of Patient Data. The primary topic for 2018 is the Future Value of Data.
