In this future, personal data systems become the norm - individuals own, control and profit from their own data. Everyone negotiates prices for their personal health data with the companies.
Health data has become the main source of income for some people with long-term medical conditions and high usage of pharmaceuticals. Health Coins are a buoyant currency.
Patients with more and better data are able to earn more Health Coins. As a result, there is more interaction between patients, pharmaceutical organisations, health insurance and researchers.
Legislation has recently made provisions for Data Coaches like the Dementia Guides for less able and more vulnerable patients. Organisations like Mozilla, in partnership with government, have established codes of conduct for trustworthy data management practices.
