When Democrats and President Obama were out “selling” the Affordable Care Act in 2009 and 2010, before they enacted it, do you recall anyone telling you that a provision of the law called for the construction of a massive government database that would contain the medical information of all Americans?

Actually, there were a few voices back then, but many news outlets were repeating warnings in the spring and summer of 2013, though they were dismissed as “crazy” by some in the media.

Well, it’s official: The Department of Health and Human Services is searching for vendors to help operate its “National Data Warehouse,” which will be a database designed for “capturing, aggregating, and analyzing information” related to beneficiary and customer experiences with Medicare and the federal Obamacare marketplaces.

As reported by The Weekly Standard:

Although the database primarily consists of quality control metrics related to individuals’ interactions with customer service, potential contractors are to “[d]emonstrate … experience with scalability and security in protecting data and information with customer, person-sensitive information including Personal Health Information and Personally Identifiable information (personal health records, etc.).”

Vendors are also instructed that one of the requirements of a possible future contract would be “[e]nsuring that all products developed and delivered adhere to Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance standards.”
