Skipr, 22 April 2014: 'Give patient control over medical data'

"Patients should be given control over their own medical records. For example, they should decide which healthcare providers can access their patient records at what time.

On the initiative of the Civil Rights Protection Foundation and the Privacy First Foundation, an internet campaign for medical privacy has been launched. On the website, people can download a letter to send to their GP or pharmacist, for example, indicating the extent to which medical data may be shared.

Not against

"We are not against sharing medical data," said a spokesperson for the Privacy First Foundation. "But now a patient is actually giving carte blanche because he or she has no idea that perhaps a thousand healthcare providers can view their data."
