Data Sharing

Can be defined as the practice of making original health data available for secondary research purposes by other investigators; data may be shared in various formats and the process of data release can range from sharing under open access arrangements to sharing under controlled and restricted conditions with named individuals or healthcare sectors. However whenever feasible, data should be shared as openly as possible (as per Section 6.3.3 of HMA/EMA Joint Task Force on Big Data – Interim (Phase I) Report, February 2019)
