I also very much concerned with the question about the security of applications. I would not like to know that my data is using someone. It's not good. How can you protect myself? I can use applications developed by reliable companies https://itechcraft.com/custom-healthcare-solutions/ .But how can I find out which companies are reliable?

Online security
Increasiing and stepping up the game of online privacy is the key in remaining safe from those snooping eyes of the hackers and therefore it is essential to deploy military grade data protection tools like encryption, password protection and also securing your online activity and incoming traffic logs via a guaranteed secure vpn server. I use PureVPN as my vpn server because it has strict no logs policy and also offers 5 plus multi logins so that is a plus.

Irony
The irony is: To get medical/health information that you're fully entitled to, you have to jump through a zillion bureaucratic hoops.

Maybe I should hire a hacker to get my own medical information for me.  It'd probably be easier and possibly even more cost-effective than to deal with the dimwits in most hospitals' medical-records offices who lack basic critical-thinking skills and pay outrageous copying rates.  (One hospital I recently dealt with for a client: More than $0.75 per page!)
