The more we learn the more we know. The more data we have on certain diseases the more we know about the different stages and different pathways a disease goes. The more data we gather overall the higher is the likelihood for us to detect patterns. The more patterns we detect the more we get to the stage where we can make probabilistic assessments on how the future of an individual might look like. This is what we call predictive medicine or predictive health-care.
If we declared anonymous data donation from smartphones, wearables and such a moral obligation (such as we could think a physical organ translation could be) and get a grip around the data security issues, we would find ourselves in very advanced stages of understanding how diseases work and what bears which kind of risk if comes to therapy.
The Challenge is on how to make data donation possible and how to market it.
