Re: NHS & Google
More needs to be made of this, can't believe it only got the ripple of attention it did. This harvesting of data needs so much more regulation and oversight. The morals of some people amazes me, I love how Google and Facebook both lead with whiter than white, help the world, angles:
"The information was used to develop and refine an alert, diagnosis and detection system that can spot when patients are at risk of developing acute kidney injury."
"The social network effectively asked top US hospitals to share anonymized patient data, such as illnesses and prescriptions, for a research project to help medics pinpoint people needing extra care or treatment."
These paragons of virtual virtue.
