August 18th, 2016

Episode 594 of 836 episodes

Company health schemes promise to spot emerging staff health concerns through the use of big data, and thereby raise productivity. But who protects employee privacy? Presenter Manuela Saragosa speaks to the head of Chevron's wellness programme, Janis Davis-Street, as well as to privacy advocate Jessica Roberts of the University of Houston Law Center. Also in the programme, can a visit to your doctor be replaced by an app? We hear from Ron Gutman, founder and chief executive of one such app designer, HealthTap, about the limits of online medical services. (Picture: Doctor writing; Credit: psphotograph/Thinkstock)
