Actually, it looks like blockchain technology could make it happen much sooner.

BlockchainForScience is a good resource on the topic. I'm collaborating with people there on how people's healthcare data could be stored in a blockchain, allowing them to release any of their data to anyone, with varying amounts of anonymization.

I still don't fully understand it at a practical implementation level, but from a higher level the logic makes sense.
