As part of the Obama administration’s Precision Medicine Initiative, the National Institutes of Health—in collaboration with the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT—has initiated a pilot called Sync for Science (S4S) that will enable individuals participating in a national cohort of one million Americans to access their health data and share it with researchers.

NIH, ONC and the Harvard Medical School Department of Biomedical Informatics will coordinate the implementation of the S4S pilot in collaboration with six electronic health record vendors—Allscripts, athenahealth, Cerner, drchrono, Epic and McKesson—which will pilot the use of open, standardized applications to give individuals the ability to easily and securely contribute their data to research.
