Feds Will Soon Sell Your Health Data

This is one more reason we feel good about not being tied to insurance companies or using electronic medical records!

From Citizen’s Council For Health Care Freedom:
Feds Will Soon Sell Your Health Data

A new Obamacare rule allows the sale of data collected from federal health care programs. Organizations with a recent “established patient relationship” can buy data with the person’s name attached. Other groups get only de-identified data (which is not anonymized and may allow reidentification). If health insurers want the federal data, they must submit data on most of their non-government enrollees (employees, children, privately insured) to the data pool. The grand purpose: to control your doctor. They call it “performance improvement.”
