The growing application of AI in healthcare has also made patient data a valuable commodity
In the last week of December, Delhi-based Sanchita Gupta (name changed) got routine pregnancy-related scans done from a private clinic. She was told everything was fine, and asked to get a second set of scans done within a couple of weeks. Later, Gupta got a call from a stem cell bank, congratulating her on the baby. Gupta was shocked how they had got access to her medical data. The caller said he had sourced it from Google.
