As reported in The Weekly Standard: Feds Plan for 35 Agencies to Help Collect, Share, Use Electronic Health Info, since ’09, physicians have been offered incentives to put all health histories into a transferable electronic format.


….This week, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced the release of the Federal Health IT Strategic Plan 2015-2020, which details the efforts of some 35 departments and agencies of the federal government and their roles in the plan to “advance the collection, sharing, and use of electronic health information to improve health care, individual and community health, and research.”

Yes, the Feds want every detail of our health histories online, to be shared by the following agencies:


Really, what could go wrong?

Here is an ABC report from 2012: Your Medical Records May Not Be Private: ABC News Investigation

…what if you were to find out those medical records containing your private history, family history and medication history weren’t so private after all?

Julie, a lawyer from Boston, discovered that her sensitive health information was available to anyone who worked at the hospital.

“My expectation was that my records were going to be private, especially my therapy records,” Julie said. “And if another doctor wanted to see my records, they’d ask me and then I’d give my authorization for them to view my records if they needed to see them.”

Julie, who requested her last name not be used, was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in her late teens and began seeing a psychiatrist in 2002 after speaking with her primary care physician.

She, like millions of Americans, thought her conversations with her psychiatrist were confidential….

What she didn’t realize was that her physician’s notes could be accessed by doctors and other health-care providers who worked in the same health-care system (6,000 doctors and nine affiliated hospitals) to have access — information she learned after going to see an on-call physician for a stomach issue and realizing he knew about intimate relationship information only disclosed to her psychiatrist.

“It was pretty traumatic because I felt that, you know, this man read without — against my wishes — without my consent,” Julie said. “He read private information that I disclosed to a therapist that I didn’t even tell my best friends about.”

Theft and violations of privacy are only the tip of the iceberg.

Giving the government total access to all our personal information?

Big Brother is watching us!

HHS is seeking input from the public before implementing their medical-records agency-sharing plan.

    The government has your employment information. The government has your bank and assets and transaction records. The government knows about your car and your firearms and donations and God knows what else. And of course the government has your “metadata”. It only follows that the government should have your health records and other intimate information.

    Seems that the only thing the government doesn’t know is who is a citizen and whether a voter is valid. (Yeah, and maybe Obama’s birth certificate and college transcripts.)

    According to website Biblical Numerics, the biblical meaning of the number 35 is, Hope. It’s the Change that is harmful. That is Obama. He loves the motto, Hope and Change. He loves to build false expectations and then screw you over. The insecure jerks feel superior that way.

    Be ware and take heed, the day of reckoning is coming, he who is last will be first, and he who is first will be last.

    Here’s another draft regulation that needs our comments. Council on Environmental Quality has proposed that Environmental reviews relative to climate change now consider upstream and downstream effects when performing reviews. Meaning that if you propose a Liquid Natural Gas export facility, you will now need to consider the upstream effect of how will a new export facility affect natural gas production. This is said to be the same approach as Obama admin. is taking with review of Keystone XL pipeline. Eg, Obama is expanding Keystone review approach to all other energy projects.
