Obama Admin Considering "Biosurveillance" Plan To Track Every American Through Their Private Medical Records

Obama Admin Considering "Biosurveillance" Plan To Track Every American Through Their Private Medical Records
I can’t see why anyone would have a problem with this.
Via CNS News:
The federal government is piecing together a sweeping national “biosurveillance” system that will give bureaucrats near real-time access to Americans’ private medical information in the name of national security, according to Twila Brase, a public health nurse and co-founder of the Citizens Council for Health Freedom.
The Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response is currently seeking public comment on a 52-page draft of the proposed “National Health Security Strategy 2015-2018” (NHSS).
“Health situational awareness includes biosurveillance and other health and non-health inputs (e.g., lab/diagnostics, health service utilization, active intelligence, and supply chain information), as well as systems and processes for effective communication among responders and critical health resource monitoring and allocation,” the draft states.
But Brase warns that the NHSS proposal would allow the federal government to monitor an individual’s behavior before, during and after any government-defined health “incident” – which could be anything from a local outbreak of the flu to a terrorist anthrax attack.
“It’s very broad. It doesn’t seem to have any limits, except they say something about, you know, properly protecting the data. But from our perspective, if the government gets access to this kind of data, [and] is allowed to do research with the data…then our privacy has already been compromised. The government has already said that our data is their data for their purposes of national health security,” Brase told CNSNews.com.

Thank You CNS and Zip. 

You gotta love this one, . . . The National Health SS.

What the hell business are your private medical records of the Federal Govt?

Oh, Wait a minute, . . . . Forgot about that State Police Registration thing in California for JNJ's Safe and Effective Risperdal.

At those Hospitals which didn't exist in 2007.
