The federal government is piecing together a sweeping national “biosurveillance” system that will give bureaucrats near real-time access to Americans’ private medical information in the name of national security, according to Twila Brase, a public health nurse and co-founder of the Citizens Council for Health Freedom.
The Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response is currently seeking public comment on a 52-page draft of the proposed “National Health Security Strategy 2015-2018” (NHSS).
“The Obama administration in the [American] Recovery and Reinvestment Act [of 2009] forces every doctor to have interoperable electronic medical records by January 1, 2015 or face penalties from Medicare, financial reductions in their payments. So that’s one thing that’s happening,” she told CNSNews.com.

Doctor/patient confidentiality? Really? You understand that under Obamacare, there is no such thing. The IPAB comes into the exam room with your doctor and dictates what treatments he can even offer you, and if he messes up and offers one that isn't approved, he can be monetarily punished.
I, myself, do not in any way work with any medical records and they aren't accessible to just anyone where I work. The company is security obsessed.
However, from where I'm sitting, the HIPAA training itself and the agreements are a joke.
Looks like the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services wants to establish some kind of *National Health Security Strategy* that would put just about everything from soup to nuts along with YOUR medical information into a "protected & secure" (a-hemm) database to be used only in emergencies. - See more at: www.abovetopsecret.com...
The Federal Data Services Hub (Hub), a component of the health insurance exchanges created by Obamacare, connects seven different government agencies and establish new access points to the sensitive personal information of the American public.
