Did you know Google just acquired the PHI of 5 million patients?

Project Nightingale

And while HIPAA covers the information, they can still use that data to make a profit!


Project Nightingale - A new blog post


"Well, Big Tech is at it again. I have previously written about Amazon's foray (here and here) into the healthcare industry, but now it is Google's turn. Google has recently partnered with Ascension, the nations second largest healthcare provider, on a project that Google calls "Project Nightingale."(This name comes from Florence Nightingale, not the picture of the beautiful songbird above.)

The partnership offers Ascension access to Google's vaunted cloud infrastructure and the full selection of Google Suite products. What Google gains has the potential for a massive invasion of privacy regarding 50 million patient's personal health information (PHI) across 21 states."
