With the ACA comes the mandate for a universal catch-all human medical database.

And with the database come new ways to track and herd people.

The latest infringement plan is called *Predictive Modeling*

Don't know the limitations or the limitless no man's land but it sure sounds scary. Almost like a de facto death panel or something.

1984 for sure is thundering in.

Modeling or programming?

A article, “Why is Predictive Modeling Essential to Healthcare?” offers this quote:

“…the algorithms of predictive modeling can analyze hundreds of data points to make a diagnosis or a prediction of risk.”

This is the new thing in American medicine, and everyone is climbing onboard. The idea is to combine diverse sets of data, to diagnose a patient—and also predict what illnesses will strike designated sectors of the population by identifying what social, economic, gender, and behavioral groups they belong to.

Obamacare: watch out, here comes “predictive modeling”

What is this "Predictive Modeling"

I suspect the intent is to determine health trends for various age groups and demographics. This could give health providers good information to determine individualized health plans for their patients.

I see a trend with your threads.

Misguided is probably the nicest way of putting it.

Anyway, predictive modelling isn't new, and it certainly isn't something exclusive to Obama's big scary ACA!

It's been on the cards, and actively used by the health care industry as early as 1995, as evidenced by this paper:

Here's and article about how it's being used at a hospital in Dallas...

Originally developed for congestive heart failure, the system has been expanded to incorporate other diseases, including diabetes, acute myocardial infarction, and pneumonia. The program has reduced readmissions and costs for congestive heart failure patients; preliminary, unpublished data suggest similar trends among patients with the other targeted conditions.

So, what exactly is wrong with predictive modelling? Tell us in your own words, without stupid pictures, please.

How does it control us?
Why now is it a problem?
Do you admit you have a big fat blind spot when it comes to Obama?
Do you realise that if someone kept bringing up so much pro-Obama rhetoric, they'd be labeled a shill, why are you any different for your anti-Obama rhetoric?

I would so like to double-star your posting! Make that a triple!

Anything with "Obama" in its heading will be posted by Xuenchen and it will have that special kind of spin.
