Aetna is getting ready to release CarePass, an app for accessing your health device data, medical records and health information all in one place. Two interesting things to note from the article:
“We see some more aggressive employers like Safeway, where they are driving outcomes by swabbing the cheeks of employees to see whether they are smoking or not.” U.S. law says that smokers can be charged higher premiums."
Wow - swabbing! And Zeo, the sleep device, is mentioned in the article as a now defunct company.
This area is moving fast. My question - will folks feel comfortable with an insurance company having more their data?
