Whistleblower Warns Google's Secret Medical Data Includes Millions

English

Whistleblower warns Google's secret medical data includes millions of people with fully complete details.

"The secret scheme involves the transfer to Google of healthcare data held by Ascension, the second largest healthcare provider in the U.S."

The whistleblower who works in Project Nightingale, the secret transfer of the personal medical data of up to 50 million Americans, has expressed anger over the fact that Americans hasn't been informed of the massive deal.

Whistleblower warns Google's secret medical data includes millions.

The anonymous whistleblower posted a video on the social media platform Daily Motion, that contained a document dump of hundreds of images of confidential files, but the video has been taken down by Daily Motion.

The search giant is amassing health records from Ascension facilities in 21 states, but no patient has been informed, they'll discover it in the jornal or on the net.

The secret scheme, was first reported by the Wall Street Journal.

The data is being transferred with full personal details including name and medical history and can be accessed by Google staff.

The disclosed documents include highly confidential outlines of Project Nightingale, laying out the four stages or “pillars” of the secret project.

By the time the transfer is completed next March, it will have passed the personal data of 50 million or more patients in 21 states to Google, with 10 million or so files already having moved across – with no warning having been given to patients or doctors.

Among the documents are the notes of a private meeting held by Ascension operatives involved in Project Nightingale.

In it, they raise serious concerns about the way patients’ personal health information will be used by Google to build new artificial intelligence and other tools.

The transfer may be in breach of federal HIPAA rules on data privacy.

If so, there will most likely be a massive lawsuit against Google.

Project Nightingale is understood to be by far the largest data transfer of its kind so far in the healthcare field.

It will cover the entire spread of Ascension, a Catholic network of 2,600 hospitals, clinics and other medical outlets.
