Data sharing is key for artificial intelligence and for future healthcare systems, but the perspectives of patients are seldom included in the larger debates of how, when, and what data to share. This chapter provides an overview of research on patient perspectives on data sharing and associated aspects, including patients’ motivations, concerns, and views on privacy and conditions for sharing. Moreover, these perspectives are put into the evolving context of informed consent and today’s European context of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Data Governance Act (DGA). Overall, there seems to be a discrepancy between the patients’ perspective on data sharing and the reality in which their data are to be shared. The current patient views are researched within relatively ‘local’ contexts, where the patient would consent to collecting data for primary use and on patients’ preferences regarding consent and what they see as barriers and motivators for data sharing. However, the reality of data use is moving towards re-use of data for secondary purposes and a context of more altruistic consent such as the DGA. Questions remain regarding how patients perceive sharing and the role of their data in the larger governance of data; seemingly, patient views are lost in the wider debate of innovation and jurisdictional competitiveness. Ensuring that patients’ voices are heard is essential for public acceptance of data sharing, and thus for inclusiveness and equity of results and innovations originating from patients’ shared data.
