‘Data for Public Benefit’ published jointly by Involve, the Carnegie UK Trust and Understanding Patient Data presents new research which highlights there are big differences in how public services define public benefit and risk with regards to data sharing. We’ve developed a framework to help organisations better evaluate these benefits and risks. This framework will help professionals weigh up the purpose of sharing data against the potential for harm and help public service providers have conversations with the public about data sharing.
