Data Watchdog Cautions Google and UK Health Partner

  • Posted by admin on May 20, 2017

The trust shared the data in connection with the test phase of Streams, an app designed to diagnose acute kidney injuries. However, the sharing reportedly was performed without an appropriate legal basis. The UK’s National Data Guardian addressed the issue in a letter to Stephen Powis, the medical director of the Royal Free Hospital in London.
