Microsoft and F29: A framework for creating a public health data repository for research purposes.

Microsoft presents a guide to creating and sharing, privately and securely, health data to drive research. At this time, it is more crucial than ever to be able to share health data to accelerate medical research and advance the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases and pandemics such as COVID-19 or others that may arise .

Microsoft Spain, together with Foundation 29, the Chair on Privacy and Digital Transformation Microsoft-Universitat de Valencia and with the legal advice of the law firm J&A Garrigues have created the “Health Data” Playbook that describes the technical and legal framework to carry out the creation of a public repository of data of health systems and that these can be shared and used in research environments.
