"I always feel like somebody’s watching me…", Part 2

Actually, this sounds like a great idea: Bluetooth-capable vital signs monitors that keep in touch with a central computer via your cellphone, so you can carry on with your life while resting assured that those pesky symptoms that tend to crop up and then vanish before you can see a doctor–and never seem to reoccur when you’re actually in the doctor’s office or hospital–can be caught, recorded, and analyzed:

This means that vital health information can be relayed to medical professionals without the need to visit a hospital, either constantly, daily or as needed. It’s a major step forward in convenience for people who need various body metrics monitored, and could serve to relieve stress on overcrowded health systems.

This kind of surveillance I think most of us could live with. In fact, it some cases it might actually help us live.
