“Social license” is a theory underlying secondary use of personal health information. The presentation will investigate whether this theory is still valid. Patients own their information. One aspect of ownership is control; determining who can access and use of what is owned. Therefore, should explicit informed consent from patients for the use of their PHI be required for secondary purposes?
