New EMIS system will listen to and ‘interpret’ GP-patient conversations


Quite aside from the need to make the "basics" work properly first, and the effect on how doctors communicate - what about the effect on how patients communicate? How would this system be explained to them? I can't begin to imagine how some patients might try to manipulate this - and equally how some patients might withhold information as they perceived "big brother" was listening. Lots of things to consider before any implementation methinks.
