Whose data is it?

Medical data gets collected into proprietary platforms.  What if all that data were to be collected in one place, so it could be analyzed?

IBM, Partners to Pool, Analyze Health Data, Wall Street Journal, April 14, 2015 B6.  IBM, Apple, Johnson & Johnson, and Medtronic to pool health data for analysis.  Only data from consenting patients will be included, and the data will be anonymized.

Who owns the data, who does the work, and who gets the benefits?  How do the proceeds get shared? Isn’t this just a different proprietary platform?
