Summary/Abstract: We live in a highly digitized and hyper-bound world in which information is being created, compiled and transferred extremely easily and fast. Technological capabilities are virtually unlimited and, while providing improvements for different aspects of our lives, they tend to pose important issues, especially when they affect the interests of the people concerned. In the field of public healthcare this is highly sensitive. Along with the rapid digitalization of personal information, one of those important issues refers to the actual ownership of health data, especially with the evermore increasing concern on maintaining data privacy. The aim is to analyze modern trends in patient information ownership from normative and ethical perspective. The results reveal three main trends of patient information ownership – public ownership, private ownership and regulations not based on the right of ownership.
