It is interesting Conor when the desire to have something means you'll accept almost any avenue. I tend to agree with you - i'd rather see *something* happen than nothing... at least that way the innovation kicks in. And let's face it, most of the time it IS only the big players that big government organizations will deal with.

Damien the problems House (one of my favourite programs) is fiction. Real doctors interact with real patients. The data is helpful but not enough on its own. Where does the data come from to get into the system, who collect the data, does the tests and give it to you to put into HealthVault? The health system is in a poor state due to lack of beds, dreadful management and lack of beds. There is less capacity in the system than 20 years ago for 700,000 more people. Its in huge need of reform and in no ones interest to see if collapse. An application from Microsoft (leaving aside the scary security and privacy issues) is not the solution Dermot

Sign me up! After the bullshit we've been through trying to get one of our kid's x-rays out of CUH, anything is an improvement. They appear to think that they own our data. Not only that but we took the kid to a consultant who said he wanted to take an x-ray. We pointed out that it had already been taken but GP forgot to send it to him. Problem would have been solved instantly by HealthVault. My data on my terms, stored and accessed by who I chose. And not a single illiterate HSE staff member who can't spell our kid's name to be involved anywhere.

What does it say about me that Microsoft's involvement in this, and their potential to get it all f**d up concerns me more than any civil liberty concerns?

From a security perspective, this should scare the hell out of everybody, not just because MicroSoft is involved. When the insurance company, through your consultant decides that you constitute a 'risk' to their bottom line, you may loose your coverage. Or a pharmaceutical could target you as a new market. Do you have an allergenic reaction to 'peanuts', want some peanuts Daimen?
