In this future, people are openly sharing and exchanging data through a citizen-led movement. Institutions like the NHS take a back seat.
People get realtime feedback on how their data has benefited others, like today's organ donor registry. While people are commercially savvy with their
other types of data, the general consensus is that health data is most valuable if it is donated for a common good.
PassThought, authentication using brain waves, is the main way of accessing health records and this has reassured people in terms of privacy. It has also enabled permissions to flow more easily, ensuring accountability at scale. It has not been easy to establish a set of shared principles for this commons, and the means to uphold them in a hyper-connected world.
