Health and social care provision is typically separated between those that buy the services (payers) and those that provide the services (providers). Depending on a country’s funding model, these may vary in their relationship, for example between state-funded, as in the UK, and insurance-funded, as in Australia.

Each model has different data needs and both must consider the interplay between privacy legislation, confidentiality and the human right to a private life. Further, funding models may create a tension between the payers’ and the providers’ point of truth used for payment.
