As more and more data is captured and newer algorithms are developed to parse it, new opportunities to improve healthcare outcomes are being unearthed. These findings, however, pose a range of questions including ownership of the data and concerns about an individual’s privacy. Balancing these competing forces will be a continuing challenge in healthcare. Stakeholders and observers will share current best practices incorporating the flood of new data and offer their opinions as to where things will likely “shake out” in the future
