    Well, shouldn't it be?

    Unless the client is also HIV positive. I mean, I'd like to be sure of that, regardless of which role I was playing.

    My Health Record opt-out debate is getting silly but government is at fault
    Neither government nor the medical lobbyists have noticed that they've lost the public's trust when it comes to safeguarding data.
    They need to listen, and earn that trust back.

    The digital health project My Health Record could undermine the ability of young people to access confidential medical care, critics have warned.

    My Health Record still isn't safe enough to proceed. It needs more than a band-aid fix

    It's dismal that people seem so keen to repeat mistakes - the UK went through a similar debacle with health-care records a while back, where the government were keen to share info with insurance companies for ludicrously low $.

    I teach my kids: whenever you hear worthies claiming that an information system with databases is perfectly safe, secure, private etc. - opt out, immediately, minimise exposure, spread chaff, whatever.

    Furthermore, when they talk about restoring confidence, the last thing you need is additional safeguards and checks, trust us. The basic problem is one of management competence and information security policies (which often go across way too many organisational boundaries). Oh, and giving widespread access to LE and commercial organisations - look at 123andme for instance. Plus, absence of even basic consumer protection legislation which would prevent a lot of the sillies and abuses (GDPR is only a start). From a consumer protection basis regarding privacy and security, we're still in the era equivalent to when they added lead-oxide to bread to make it look whiter.

    It's almost criminal negligence when you look at the huge benefit of having population-level healthcare information available which would be a enormous public good.
