According to the website, in an era when technology allows personal health information to be more easily stored, updated, accessed and exchanged, the following rights should be self-evident and inalienable. We the people:

  • Have the right to our own health data.
  • Have the right to know the source of each health data element.
  • Have the right to take possession of a complete copy of our individual health data, without delay, at minimal or no cost; if data exist in computable form, they must be made available in that form.
  • Have the right to share our health data with others as we see fit.


These principles express basic human rights as well as essential elements of health care that is participatory, Health 2.0 appropriate and in the interests of each patient. No law or policy should abridge these rights.
