The Market for Medical Records Data

What we do with Electronic Medical Records data is a hot topic around the world. The UK had its own problems when it tried to launch “Care.Data” (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-26259101) to extract data from family doctors (General Practitioners) which have still not been resolved.

Adam Tanner from Scientific American has written an interesting article on how the market for medical records data has been growing and how patient privacy may be at risk if the data is not properly anonymised.
