The recent COVID-19 pandemic has posed a significant challenge for health organisations around the world in providing treatment and ensuring public health safety. While this has manifested the need for data sharing amongst health organisations, it has also highlighted the importance of ensuring patient data privacy in doing so. This chapter explores the different techniques which facilitate patient data privacy in pandemic monitoring. It also discusses the strengths as well as their limitations, along with possible areas for future research.
