EHR giant Epic explains how it will bring Apple HealthKit data to GPs

But, what if patients say, “Hey, I want my data to go directly into my online data store, not to Apple, Epic, Larry or Moe?”

Indeed, the commenter of the page is right in putting the question up again – after the iCloud leakage of bare-breasted celebrity pics even the last person should have learnt that giving up ownership of data inevitably leads to loss of it, regardless of whether it is Apple, Facebook, Google or Epic, or anyone else paying someone in the chain of data to participate on it. Whether HIPAA is touched, the future will see.

For other parts of the world, the mileage may vary.
