"Biosurveillance is defined in the National Strategy for Biosurveillance as “the process of gathering,
integrating, interpreting, and communicating essential information related to all-hazards threats or disease
activity affecting human, animal, or plant health to achieve early detection and warning, contribute to overall
situational awareness of the health aspects of an incident, and to enable better decision making at all levels.”
Nowhere in the PDF does it mention an effort to "give bureaucrats near real-time access to Americans’ private medical information in the name of national security". This is part of our anti-pandemic, biological warfare, and natural disaster strategies.
'Biosurveillance' has been a part of our comprehensive monitoring and reaction strategy for years with a National Biosurveillance Integration Center (NBIC) being established by Congress in 2007 to take the lead in this important area.
