From a reader:
Everyone may or may not know about this one, but could bring a couple responses.
When you go to your health care provider your information will be entered into your Health care Provider's computer. If not right now, it will be in the very near future.
All doctors are learning about a new way of keeping Patient's medical history online, so any doctor or hospital or clinic can access this information no matter where you are visiting or admitted.
The thing is it will also contain all your other history and information you have been trying to protect at all costs.
Example, any government agency would be able to access your medical history anytime they wanted to so no more Doctor Patient confidentiality.
It would also allow any doctor, nurse, intern, receptionist or a friend of a receptionist to get access to your private medical and personal information history.
The only person who would not be able to access this information would be the spouse, unless they had a friend who had access to a medical computer with this new Patient History/Record Keeping program.
This could prove to be worse than the FBI Wire Tapping.
We have no privacy anymore.
