EU officials have pledged to begin their latest big data experiment, a pan-European healthcare super database containing private health information from the EU’s 27 member states, BREITBART reported on May 4. EU officials say it is a truly historic step forward for digital health in the EU. According to a press release on the EU, the “European Health Data Space, EHDS,” will allow healthcare professionals, approved researchers, and third parties to access citizens’ medical data consistent with the EU privacy and information security laws website.
It is reported those who have their information in the system will be able to control their information to some degree, correct inaccuracies, and restrict access to certain records to the extent that is not mentioned in the press release.
Stella Kyriakides, the EU Commissioner for Health and Food Safety, said the database is citizen-centric and empowers them to take full control of their data for better health care across the EU. Examples of past data breaches and warnings from experts suggest that such a program could be fraught with danger. One security researcher on the dangers of vaccine passports says the government has said time and time again that they are serving data to citizens and claiming it will be protected, but what we see is that this information ends up in the data archives of Google searches.
