Opposition Leader Concerned about a possible Invasion of Citizens’ Privacy through the use of the recently launched Health Card initiative.

NEWS GRAPHIC 15Concerns are being raised by the Opposition Leader of the People’s National Movement about a possible invasion of citizens’ privacy through the use of the recently launched Health Card initiative.

The government has insisted that the National Health Card will help track any patient encounters at any location, effectively reducing time to find people in emergency cases.

In defending the move the government explained that NHC is an innovative program that allows pharmacists to more efficiently access a person’s prescription history using a secured electronic card.

However, PNM Political Leader, Dr Keith Rowley, commented on the issue this week in Arima during a public meeting highlighting concerns surrounding a possible breach of confidentiality.
