We sat down with Pieter van Galen – freelance trainer and consultant, person with multiple sclerosis, and a member of the Lumanity Expert Patient Council – to talk about “big data” and why it is important to the patient community.

Pieter shares his experience with the MS Data Alliance who are committed to finding multi-stakeholder solutions to the issues around health data collection and usage, and importantly building the necessary trust and education within patient communities.
