@ Dean:

Alright. Who wants and should have access to my clinical data?

My primary care doctor? Yes, and that is OK.
My specialist doctors? Yes, and that is OK.
My pharmacist? Maybe, but I don't think so.
My therapist and social workers? No.
My trainers and dietitians? No

Me? Yes, and that is a requirement.
My spouse? No.
My children? No.
My extended family? No.
My neighbors? No.
My friends? No.
My sex partners? No.

My employer? No.
My school? No.
My rugby team? No.
My local police? No.
Other law enforcement? No.
My local EMT specialists? Maybe, but think No.

CIA, FBI, NSA, HS, etc? No.
CDC? No.

SO, WHO WANTS ACCESS TO MY CLINICAL DATA, AND WOULD GO TO LENGTHS TO GET IT? Fill in as many as apply.

Pharmaceutical companies interested in marketing to me and others with similar medical histories of complaints, procedures, and medications? There are, of course, legitimate reasons for them to support this project. But as purely self-interested promoters of "innovative" products, they can't be trusted. (I don't know who coined the phrase "precision medicine," but it has an icky sound to it.)

Insurance companies?

Prospective employers?
