If you were to read this title what would it mean to you?

Does it mean that the public owns my own patient data? That the public decides what is my data? That the public has access to my data? How much of my data and for what reasons?

Well, it all depends on your perspective – or the perspective of the government – or the perspective of the doctor, clinic, or hospital who collected your data.

And is that “collector” an electronic database owner? Or is it all on paper?

That should get you to thinking for a minute or two… I’ll come back with more.
