Flip this ^
People share health information with practitioners; this can exist in
many forms, e.g., a push of selected info from patient to practitioner
that dies after set time.
Think inspector gadget.
Practitioner only gets temporary/limited privileges (:
>> Seth David Schoen:
Is needed to protect against intruders, which is outside much of the
potential user-base context.
However, https is still a use-case to be designed for, as the .onion
experience needs some more tlc.
Tor Browser and some OpenPGP keys may be enough.
P2P cuts out the potentially malicious middlemen, though.
>> location anonymity
Is relevant for domestic issues that overlap with healthcare.
Can be justified with education as the main trade-off, and is next to
non-existent in the locations with large population clusters, especially
here in the .kr (:
