The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) began publishing Linked Data in 2011 as part of an ongoing effort to inform the public and stimulate new health care applications.

The Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI) is recognized as one of the leading international web science research institutes interlinking technologies, information and people to advance business and benefit society.

In the US, the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) published a report on Health IT that imagines new scenarios and recommends new capabilities for interacting with health data.

At DERI, innovative ontology and software implementations demonstrate how users can create and manage fine-grained privacy preferences that restrict or grant access to their Linked Data

This session will give an overview of the HHS/DERI collaboration to implement 'data element access services' towards the realization of patient controlled privacy.
