Although I see a great opportunity and advantage in the research, it also carries a huge risk that would pose a threat to health informatics as well as patients. I tend to share the data with the research team, but it would breach a certain number of ethics that I have to abide by such as the principle of information privacy & disposition, the principle of legitimate infringement, etc. However, I will consult with ethical boards and the legal assistant team in my organization to broaden my knowledge of the ethics of sharing data and to comply laws and regulations of the host country. Following that, the final decision will be adjusted on whether I should share data with the research team.
A huge barrier in the project is that individual data has been requested by the research team. We have collected this data with a specific purpose and if we are about to share it with another organization, consent of participant have to be considered for data privacy. Instead, individual information should be de-identified before transferring to the team. In addition, the research team has to take accountability to safeguard the data privacy and confidentiality when the data is used. Regular assessments should be done for the research team on the handling of data to comply with the initial agreement.
