Note from anonymous physician:
The SIM – State Innovation Model- promoted by HHS for the States to set up medical homes is the backdoor to government control of physicians and patients through monitoring of everything and everyone involved, through determination of what is quality and what HHS decides is cost effective.
The avenue to get this information is the electronic patient medical record EHR of the SIM programs and the health insurance claims data from the All-Payer Claims Databases – APCD that the states are setting up. These are frightening invasions of privacy that could be hacked, leaked or used for blackmail of a politician and thus threaten our democracy. I am working on the patient privacy issue because once gone, it cannot be brought back.
