A critical element in designing a biomedical research platform is the design of a responsible data-sharing mechanism. Such mechanism should provide high utility data in an efficient and timely manner. Existing platforms do not deliver on both timeliness and utility. In this paper, we present a theoretical privacy protection framework. The framework proposes a smart honest broker system that provides data requests with a privacy protection that matches their posed risk. It promises to deliver on both fronts.
