Twila Brace….Protecting Patient Privacy

Protecting Patient Privacy
in a Health Care System That
Hoards and Shares Data
ST. PAUL, Minn.—If there’s one thing that feeds the monster of government health care, it’s data.As corporations and government agencies seek to access more and more private medical data in real time from electronic medical records, there is an increasing number of doctors and patients that wants to keep that information where it belongs—in the exam room.

Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom (CCHF, www.cchfreedom.org) has long educated patients  about the dangers of having their private, personal medical data shared with countless government entities through means such as Electronic Health Records (EHRs), the HIPAA “no-privacy” act and enrollment in Obamacare.

“We recently shared in CCHF’s ‘Health Freedom Minute’ that 39 percent of American doctors think EHRs have worsened health care, compared to just 11 percent of European doctors,” said Twila Brase, president and co-founder of CCHF. “U.S. doctors don’t like the EHR system because it was designed for coding and billing rather than caring for patients. EHRs are distracting, and EHR functions mean that too much irrelevant data hides the meaningful data doctors truly need. EHRs make taking care of patients less efficient and more time-consuming. No wonder American doctors think they are unsafe!

“Doctor’s offices and clinics that strive to offer their patients freedom, a return to true care and more affordable health care aren’t bound by expensive and care-compromising EHR systems because they are not bound by corporate contracts,” Brase continued. “In addition to protecting their patients’ private health data, not having an EHR system also lowers operating costs, translating to a less expensive way of doing health care for patients. It’s refreshing to hear that the new president of the American Medical Association, Andrew W. Gurman, has skipped the EHR altogether.” (Read more here: http://www.hcplive.com/medical-news/andy-gurman-md-takes-reins-as-ama-president)

Patients are looking for alternative systems that protect their confidentiality and the privacy of their personal data—and more and more doctors are offering them—since two Supreme Court decisions kept the increasingly “unaffordable” Affordable Care Act and its data-reporting activities alive. Both with anniversaries this month, the first SCOTUS decision, National Federation of Independent Business v. Sebelius, was decided on June 28, 2012. It ruled the Obamacare fee for not having coverage was a tax rather than a penalty or a mandate. Then last year, SCOTUS saved the ACA again in King v. Burwell by declaring on June 25 that Obamacare subsidies were legal in all states.
