Nothing is quite as vile as a vendor who preys on the very young, the very old or the chronically ill. They're the weakest members of society-- people who can't fight back effectively. The worst, I believe, are the companies who that target people worried about their health. If people are frightened or in pain, it can be impossible to think clearly.

Plus, if you screw around with people's healthy information-- as PatientsLikeMe (whom I honored at http://bit.ly/1r2gEtv ) or PracticeFusion (http://bit.ly/1r2gFO2 ) do-- you can cause permanent damage. Health information is the most private data any of us has-- with the most long-term, damaging consequences.

As companies gain access to it, they'll begin using it to make hiring decisions-- just as many companies use financial information or credit checks to decide whether or not to bring you on. One cancer patient can cost an HMO a million dollars-- and our vendor uses that in their ratings. isn't it just simpler to hire people who are healthy?

(And when they can get our DNA-- and run probabilities on our developing diseases, that's when things get truly dystopic. Angelina Jolie  recently underwent a double mastectomy. It wasn't because she was sick-- she had a family history of cancer and because her genes indicated she'd probably encounter the same thing.)

Personally, I would never put health information on my phone. They're not secure; no vendor on earth can prevent you from losing data (except maybe Blackphone). An App maker isn't in control of the universe. The phone's hardware and firmware are the first insecure layer. Next comes the operating system. Then come whatever modules the developer uses.

To use an illustrative example:

1. The majority of attacks on Windows systems don't come through the OS. The three most common ways of getting in are (a) Java, (b) Flash and (c) either the PDF file or Adobe's reader

2. The BSD operating system (think "Unix fork") prides itself on being the most secure and stable OS-- nobody can crack it. But it turned out they were using OpenSSL-- meaning they had the Heartbleed bug embedded

It's the nature of writing applications-- you live at the sufferance of others. 

(For the record, Better is an iOS-only app. Apple is closer to being a walled garden than Android. I'd love to know if that's why they close iOS, or if they're merely Apple fanbois.)

But even if I could be convinced that Apple was 100% secure, I wouldn't go near a vendor that doesn't even have a privacy policy posted loudly and clearly. You're just begging them to sell or share what you upload..

In the piece, the CEO claims he follows HIPAA standards. If that's so, he should put it in writing. Otherwise, there's no reason to assume he's acting in good faith. (being partners with the Mayo Clinic doesn't make it OK-- they've done some evil stuff before.)

Another thing they need to be clear about is "What happens to the company if it takes funding?" Oculus VR just went through this. They went to Kickstarter, asking for $250,000 to make a game helmet, promising the company would always stay true to its goal.

The Internet heard their plea (or their deck, if you're being cynical) and gave them $2.5 million.

Then they took $75 million from Andreessen-Horowitz, and the terms of the deal required the company to accept any big offer they got. Facebook comes along... BOOM! . (I covered it here: http://bit.ly/1tgQqaE )

Remember, there was a point-- and it wasn't all that long ago-- when Facebook had one of the best privacy policies in the business. That changed the minute Hoodie the Data Vampire realized there was big money in selling his users to advertisers.

Not to be mean, but if Better gets bought-- or just gets money-- and the terms of the offer sheet say "The company will now make reasonable use of the data we collect"... well, that's how you end up selling the information to the Medical Information Bureau or Big Pharma.

It's a basic principle of risk management-- think of the worst possible thing that could happen and then come up with ways to prevent it-- or at least limit the damage as far as you can.  Assume that the nice CEO you trust implicitly will be hit buy a bus next week and replaced by the love child of Ba'Al -Zevuv and Larry Ellison (assuming, of course, that those are two separate people).

Another technique, hope people will behave well, but design in case they don't. So years ago, I was having conversations saying "We need to pass laws controlling what you can do with a car phone, or a lot of people might get killed." 

"No, no, no-- people won't do that.". Well, last year, according to the site Distraction.gov (http://1.usa.gov/1tgSGyH ):

"The number of people killed in distraction-affected crashes decreased slightly from 3,360 in 2011 to 3,328 in 2012. An estimated 421,000 people were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving a distracted driver, this was a nine percent increase from the estimated 387,000 people injured in 2011,"

If we'd passed the laws early, before most people had phones, we could have prevented much of that. Now that people have phones, want to use them everywhere-- and the CTIA makes money off the sales-- they fight laws that would jam your cellphone if the motor is on. 

Me need to make sure, before there is a booming market for selling personal health information, that we limit the chance to use it. 

I'm sure the citizens of "The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland" never imagined, when they were getting their health care from the National Health Service, that anyone would ever try to make commercial use of their patient information. But they figrued wrong: NHS is selling their data, and the price is shockingly low: http://bit.ly/1tgRpYv

US Mobile Phones Will Come Standard With Kill Switches By 2015 http://b4in.org/h1v5

One line from the otherwise regrettable “The Hangover Part III” rings true for most of us. Zach Galifianakis’ man-child character offers, “There’s nothing worse than losing your phone.” While this comes as the characters endure comedic stupidity, in the average lives that most of us lead losing our phone is fairly devastating.

This is why in 2015 a “kill switch” will be standard on all smartphones sold in the United States. The CTIA this week issued a statement with participating wireless companies that announced the start of the Smartphone Anti-Theft Voluntary Commitment. This is the most recent effort by the industry to help deter smartphone thefts in the country.

A kill switch is software built into the device that allows the owner or carrier to disable the phone remotely if it is lost or stolen. The phone will actually not just be disabled, but will make it unable to be activated again for the resale market.

Under the rules of the Smartphone Anti-Theft Voluntary Commitment agreement, all new models of smartphones first manufactured after July 2015 will have a baseline anti-theft tool preloaded or downloadable; it will not be an option.

Four functions are outlined in the agreement. Users must have the ability to remotely wipe the phone of user data; the phone must be rendered inoperable to an unauthorized user; the software should prevent reactivation without an authorized user’s permission; and the user should be able to reverse the inoperability if the smartphone is recovered by the authorized user; as well, the user should be able to restore data on the smartphone from the cloud if it is feasible.

The new initiative has a number of companies already backing it. In addition to the regulatory group, commitments have been made from Apple, Asurion, AT&T, Google, HTC, Huawei Device USA, Motorola Mobility, Microsoft, Nokia, Samsung Telecommunications America, Sprint, T-Mobile USA, U.S. Cellular and Verizon Wireless.
