Nebraska Collecting All Health Data on All Residents — Critics Call It a Step Toward National Digital ID

By Mike Capuzzo


Nebraska lawmakers have created a state Health Information Technology (HIT) Board to collect health information on all Nebraskans in a centralized data and surveillance system that, according to lawmakers, will be used by doctors to improve patient care.

But critics warn the system marks a step toward the oppressive control of digital ID and digital currency that could sweep the U.S.

The Nebraska Legislature in 2020 voted unanimously to create the Nebraska HIT Board, composed of 17 members appointed by the governor and confirmed by a majority vote of the legislature.

Members include doctors, a nurse practitioner, hospital administrators and other healthcare stakeholders with “clinical experience and expertise to make the most informed decisions about the health data that they help govern,” according to the HIT Board website
