Privacy and Health

Abstract

This chapter explores the privacy implications of allowing health organizations to store and manipulate patient data. It examines the UK’s care.data programme in detail, explaining the differences between and dangers inherent in anonymized, pseudonymized, aggregate and identifiable data. It also looks into Obamacare in the US, and in particular the Healthcare.gov website which for a time was enabling commercial organizations to suck up personal information from its visitors.
