His Take on Medical Data and Secure Sharing
Medical data is quite sensitive. The access and sharing of such data has been a critical matter over time. Eric admits that medical data is personal. He, however, states that patients have no use for their medical data. In that case, systems in which medical data can be shared, considering the security, is vital. Professionals in health start-ups, including Eric Topol, admit that the U.S. is yet to achieve the security and storage required for medical data.
Baltic, for example, stores their citizen’s medical data on block chains. This allows secure retrieval and sharing of data, with the help of the government, at the point of need. Eric Topol states that various people/organizations exploit US citizens’ data. The handlers even sell the data to data mining companies. The dark web has become a go-to zone for private medical data making citizen’s medical information vulnerable.
Patients would rather own their medical data than keep it in hospital servers and tech companies. The only way to save health records and informatics is to adopt the Baltic Republic’s approach. In so doing, all nations must cooperate to promote data security. Eric Lefkosky agrees that medical data is safer with patients. He, however, states that it is necessary to build systems that promote secure sharing of health information. This step would go a long way in reducing the vulnerability of such data.
