Google’s DeepMind responded to criticism of its partnership with London’s Royal Free hospital to create an app allowing doctors to rapidly identify and treat acute kidney injuries.
DeepMind claimed that the company was better placed than any other tech firm to handle sensitive medical information, thanks to its long history of securing highly personal data from other fields. As part of Google, DeepMind has the very best privacy and secure infrastructure for managing the most sensitive information.
DeepMind also explained that its information governance processes were awarded a level three certification by HSCIC, the highest possible, while even of the hospitals in the country only have a level two. According to the recent agreement, London’s Royal Free hospital agreed to share 5 years of historical data on patients and real-time information on their status, which made patient groups worry.
According to statistics, acute kidney injuries kill 1,000 people every month due to the difficulty in identifying problems and taking timely measures. The timescale for an intervention is a matter of hours, but if the injury is identified early, there is a chance to save the patient’s life.
The agreement with the hospital prevents the tech firm from using the data in any other part of Google’s business. DeepMind will also have to delete its own copy when the agreement expires in 18 months. The problem is that the breadth and depth of the data being shared caused some people to think that Google had intentions to use it elsewhere.
DeepMind explained that the app used in the data-sharing agreement, Streams, requires the data set to make timely calls about patients potentially suffering acute kidney injuries, and the required data is too broad because kidney injuries are more common and more serious in patients with multiple comorbidities.
