This is an exceptionally important article about @google and health care data being provided by @Ascensionorg, without patient or doctor knowledge. So do we, as a society care – what protections are there? @ChrisMurphyCT @SenBlumenthal @rosadelauro wsj.com/articles/googl… @WSJ
@Google @Ascensionorg @ChrisMurphyCT @SenBlumenthal @rosadelauro @WSJ Why was the project begun in secret? Especially given #privacy issues? 'Google began Project Nightingale in secret last year w/St. Louis-based Ascension, a Catholic chain of 2,600 hospitals, doctors’ offices and other facilities, w/data sharing accelerating since summer.’ @WSJ
@Google @Ascensionorg @ChrisMurphyCT @SenBlumenthal @rosadelauro @WSJ According to @WSJ: "Neither patients nor doctors have been notified. At least 150 Google employees already have access to much of the data on tens of millions of patients, according to person familiar w/the matter and the documents.” Do why not notify everyone before you start?

*ATTENTION PLEASE*#AI #digitalhealth #tweeps Today @IndraJoshi10 and I at @NHSX are launching our new "Artificial Intelligence: How to get it right report" with help from A LOT of people across the digital health ecosystem nhsx.nhs.uk/key-informatio… 1/ 14
The report goes into detail on our plans for the NHS AI lab but, more importantly, the research that sits beneath that - particularly the work on governance: ethics and regulation with invaluable input from @reformthinktank @oxfordethicslab @turinginst @FutureAdvocacy 2/14
We (@IndraJoshi10 & me) hope that the report makes it clear WHY we think #AI is important for health and care & HOW we can make sure it is utilised in the 'right' way - not just for the sake of it - within safe & ethical boundaries 3/14

Use an ovulation app? If your data isn’t going to your employer, or Facebook, it might go to a radical anti-abortion group, which funded Femm! “Women's fertility app is funded by anti-abortion campaigners” theguardian.com/world/2019/may…
It was @flotracker that was both sharing data with @facebook & targeting ads at users wsj.com/articles/popul… /2
And @OviaHealth that was sharing aggregated data with women (or their partner’s) employers, although IMHO that’s defensible if done transparently washingtonpost.com/technology/201… /3

Online access to my GP records - what an exciting concept. Let's see how it works. #NHS #digitalhealth
So according to the NHS info, all I have to do is pop down to my GP surgery and get them to generate a username and password for me. I did that, and it was a quick process to get the info. nhs.uk/using-the-nhs/…
So this is the menu after I logged in. Some options are unavailable for some reason (greyed out) - looks like I can't view my full patient record

Now reading the the #TopolReview report - Preparing the healthcare workforce to deliver the digital future. It's an illuminating read topol.hee.nhs.uk #DigitalHealth
It's clear that a lot of effort has gone into the #TopolReview - it paints a glorious vision of what healthcare would look like over the next 20 years (for both staff and patients) - enabled by technology such as #genomics, #AI and #robotics
For me the #Topolreview has too narrow a focus. It's been commissioned by healthcare, yet we know that with an aging population, many people with long term conditions have to rely upon #socialcare as well. We need joined up thinking, imho.

Apple has a section of their website answering questions doctors may have regarding their latest #ECG technology. Where are the answers to the REAL questions #patients want to know about? For example, if I get an alert:

#AppleWatch #digitaltech #wearables #PatientAdvocacy
2) when do I confidently ignore, act upon, or wait to make actionable decisions about alerts I’ve received? #AppleWatch #digitaltech #digitalhealth #wearables #Innovation #PatientAdvocacy #healthcare #medtwitter
