This paper reflects on the digital health compass to navigate the health system using one’s own data. Health information technology standards are at the core of the compass, to tap the potential of shared aggregate data and sustain trust. The notion of the patient summary as a window to one’s health is used as an example to drive our call for action for health informatics to develop methods to calibrate the digital health compass and feed on ‘my data’, respecting ‘my decision’, to fuel ‘our ePower’.
