Data sharing between private healthcare and NHS

I stumbled across this article today that talked about data sharing between private healthcare and the NHS. This really caught my interest because an iniative that we are working on at Blue Cross of NC is to create better data pipelines to share data back and forth between our health insurance company and providers. One part that stuck out to me was the reason for sharing the data- "By redirecting the flow of data for hundreds of thousands of privately funded hospitals from PHIN to NHS Digital, the central dataset is intended to allow providers, care planners, regulators and researchers to better understand how private and public healthcare data sits alongside each other and how it can be used to improve care overall."

Whether you are in the UK or the USA, I would love to hear your thoughts on these new ways of sharing data for the greater good.
