NIH and ONC Launch the Sync for Science (S4S) Pilot: Enabling Individual Health Data Access and Donation

On February 25, 2016, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), in collaboration with the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC), announced the launch of Sync for Science (S4S), a pilot to allow individuals to access their health data and send it to researchers in support of the goals of the Precision Medicine Initiative (PMI). Individual data donation will be a key component of the PMI Cohort Program, which aims to enroll more than one million U.S. participants who will volunteer to donate health data about themselves for precision medicine research. ONC, NIH, and the Harvard Medical School Department of Biomedical Informatics will coordinate the implementation of the S4S pilot in collaboration with EHR developers who have committed to participate: Allscripts, athenahealth, Cerner, drchrono, Epic, and McKesson.
