ABC Radio National - Background Briefing Alert.

I just heard that Background Briefing is running a show of Privacy in the Digital Age - including e-Health at 9:10 am Sunday May 16, 2010.

The show was promoted on Breakfast this morning.


E-health database: breakthrough or big brother?

In Tuesday's Budget the government announced $466 million for a new e-health system and made a big deal about how it was going to protect our privacy when medical records go online. The government is at pains to placate privacy advocates because down the track it has big plans to give all Australians a 16-digit healthcare number. That number would link various health databases that contain our sensitive medical details. Privacy in the digital age is this week's focus on Radio National's Background Briefing.
