It's interesting that very much every corporation involved in the pandemic is a WEF partner.
It is just a coincidence, totally not staged at all.
The contentious procurement of the UK health service's £480 million ($580 million) Federated Data Platform (FDP) – which US spy-tech firm Palantir is tipped to win – has seen a new competitor enter the fray in the form of a UK consortium of vendors. According to the Financial Times, Voror Health Technologies, Eclipse and Black …
There is. I've heard a couple of people ask for this so maybe it's not accessible for all, but to the right of the name there should be two icons (two because it seems the volume of posting was enough for a silver badge). The leftmost icon of the two should normally give you access to a block, and so prevent you from ever being bothered by comments of that person again.
If that feature is not visible to all I'd like to hear from El Reg why not.
That said, I tend not to use it myself. I prefer to keep an eye on things, also because it's then easier to report a post if it has come off the rails too much. That said, the moderators do their work too here.
Yup.....Amazon getting in on the "medical records" action in the US.
(1) Amazon in bed with Palantir
(2) Amazon provides details of retail sales (meds, medical equipment, medical supplies,......)
(3) .... and Palantir provides medical records, names, addresses, email addresses, doctor's names, surgery details......
Perhaps our friendly representatives in Westminster have already received the Fortnum's bags!!!!!
* keep the £480 million in the UK
* grow IT skills/solutions in the UK -- will let us better compete for similar in other countries
* keep our personal data private -- away from grubby/leaky USA companies
This is the sort of joined up thinking that our government should be doing; but I fear that they are not
I wonder if FDP have the right sort of brown envelopes to help them win this
Agreed! We do have the expertise in-house, but more often than some fad or other comes along and any such resources are then either underutilised, or dispensed with altogether.
(Disclaimer: I work for the NHS on a prescription system, developed in-house, that has existed in one form or another, and evolved as a result, for 30+ years)
If the contract is specific to NHS England, then you have a point, but the NHS exists in Scotland and Wales too. Northern Ireland has an NHS-like body but it's not called the NHS. There it's called HSCNI.
Keep in mind that politicians (especially those who spaff out sound bites such as this one) don't particularly care for/know about these subtle distinctions either.
