Re: the NHS uses a program called Streams

"the NHS uses a program called Streams that analyses blood test results in conjunction with patient history to spot imminent kidney failure. "

I hope it's better than the blood testing the USA company did.

Is this project actually delivering?

Has it been audited?

What does Google ACTUALLY do (verified by independent audit) with the patient data on the Streams program?

Is it really AI or simply a curated database + pattern matching?

Why is Google doing it? They are not a medical company, purely a company leveraging internet services and Android to get info to better sell Adverts.

Morally, should people be using Google Analytics or recommending Google DNS, or setting Google as DNS source on a shared router.
