It is -- there.
MRI can say that under Obama -- all doctors are encouraged.
Pushed towards putting your -- time medical history online.
Is that accurate that is accurate infect your penalized if you don't do that now.
Now -- much in the midst of that in the something that I found out that is probably gonna be disturbing to your viewers which is.
I'm working on -- electronic records and I like it.
I noticed if I see a patient in another doctor so the patient before.
Their records are already on line meaning I'm sharing information.
On wittingly with -- other physicians.
Not all my patients want that not only patients want every one of their physicians to know everything about them.
-- to efficiency and medical care Stewart but privacy can be compromised if you head the federal government to that pool.
Who knows what's gonna happen with the information federal government will know you're depressed don't know what medications you're on what -- they can't -- that information we're already having that can lower the federal government knows this.
And he does the senate but don't don't hundreds of thousands of people die every year because of the misinformation I did I mean there's one of these cases -- -- -- Don't we want desperately for this up the be -- -- yeah.
But the hospital everyday that we can never come every nurse asking the same question every doctor -- the same question every every what -- -- everyone that calls and questions are.
-- in the middle of doing that right now for -- reason I totally agree with you.
You're talking about duplication and we need to cut down on duplication but there is an issue of security and vaulting and privacy right at the same time your point is right.
You don't want repeats of course the other problem with -- is when you go to look electronic medical records usually.
It's your hospital that has all of them so when you go to another hospital you may be at a disadvantage so it incentivized.
As you Stewart staying where -- -- under one roof.
But overall he's right you've got to cut down -- -- I like it but I'm concerned about the privacy don't Wear Cynthia -- thing is when your employer says to you.
You know if you want lower premiums under obamacare give us your health records like CBS -- recently I wonder how much away.
I wanna know your height but eventually isn't somebody gonna penalize you for that.
That's the concern.
It does the government any agency of government have direct access to mind postal medical history because you doctors have put it on line.
Do they have access to know they're not not right now I don't suppose they're not right now they do not right now.
But these scandals suggests that if they want to they can take a look well that's gonna suggest I -- When they have something called Medicare or Medicaid as an interface is a federal programs do you know what -- via.
Is -- -- -- -- -- the -- all the time I want everyone to know this a minute I can get audited by Medicare all the time the federal government can get access to my health records on the Medicare.
Okay what you're worried about that is being the individual being pushed around.
Because the government knows your entire medical history from soup to nuts you could be pushed into losing weight or taking this drug to get your blood pressure down -- -- -- have a.
Pushed or by someone buy euros a lawyer and -- sticks -- -- -- -- great you know if you lose what I love the -- if you lose weight you get a lower premium.
If you look if you put pressure goes down you get a lower premium you stop smoking will give you lower premium.
Great but what about those sticks when you don't lose weight I don't want to see people penalized either by their employer.
Or by the federal government that's why I say by the way in my -- in the New York Post today.
How that conversation now.
-- your physician now is your physician gonna still be seeing you are they still going to be taking your insurance what's your employer gonna do are they gonna drop you or they gonna make you.
Part time so that they don't have to pay for your health insurance are they gonna charge you 40%.
Which there were allowed to do under Obama care.
With a rising -- you can you afford it can -- afford obamacare.
I don't think we can.
Okay do you think it's going to be stole.
No but I think that -- know I don't think that the political -- there.
I think obamacare is here I think what is gonna happen a lot -- parts of it are gonna fall off the beast -- Well that would bracket when.
I mean if you if you can go you sure you -- it's already rectitude bloated program that we cannot afford it toward Iraq.
We -- yeah I think.
