    This is why you don't take the word of questionable sources over the text itself. From the actual draft:

    "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.

    Clearly all the connectiveness talk and discussion about Fed/state/local data exchange could allow something like this, but it doesn't say directly "we're going gather up every scrap of info on your medical history and read it". If you're combing for that kind of smoking gun, you can forget it.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.
