Data Watchdog Cautions Google And UK Health Partner

Wochit Headline News - Friday, 19 May 2017  (5 days ago)
A British data watchdog has raised questions about whether it was appropriate for a healthcare trust to share data on 1.6 million patients with DeepMind Health, an AI company owned by Google. The trust shared the data in connection with the test phase of Streams, an app designed to diagnose acute kidney injuries. However, the sharing was performed without an appropriate legal basis. The National Data Guardian at the Department of Health earlier this year sent the letter to the medical director of the Royal Free Hospital in London, which provided the patients' records to DeepMind. The National Data Guardian safeguards the use of healthcare information in the UK.
