Obama Wants ‘Social and Behavioral’ Data Included in Health Records

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) wants to require health care providers to include “social and behavioral” data in Electronic Health Records (EHR) and to link patient’s records to public health departments, it was announced last week.

Health care experts say the proposal raises additional privacy concerns over Americans’ personal health information, on top of worries that the Obamacare “data hub” could lead to abuse by bureaucrats and identify theft.

  1. Ok, so where can I buy this information? I don't care if the government sells it direct, let's others sell it or just can't secure it, I want that juicy data to plug into my corporate promotions machine.
