Data-Driven Health Innovation and Privacy Regulation (01a Articolo in rivista)

Conti C., D'Annunzio A., Reverberi P.

Data-driven health innovation may lead to develop targeted treatments using health data. We consider privacy-sensitive patients who may decide to share personal health data if compensated. Each patient does not internalize the impact of sharing data on drug innovation. We show that investment incentives in targeted treatments are too weak as long as such innovation has a public good nature so that patients can free ride on sharing health data. Then, privacy protection measures reducing data sharing risks can promote pharmaceutical R&D and social welfare
