« Back to Glossary Index

Data not immediately related to an individual’s health and wellbeing, but which may be used to support health decisions, (e.g. demographic data, telecommunications data, and weather data). This data may also include personal data that is not directly health-related (e.g. location data, customer shopping data or social data collected through smartphones or self-tracking devices) but which can potentially be used by health-care providers, insurers, or decision-makers.
