The question of who owns the data is a related issue that needs to be addressed, Dr. Emmott added.

“When you own an e-book on Kindle, you own digital access, not the book or its content,” he said. “With health records, it seems right that the patient should own the data, but that’s not the way it works. The doctor creates and maintains that record and can buy and sell it if he sells the practice. And with electronic data, the software companies control our access to that data. So who owns the data? As a society, we have not adequately addressed these issues.”
