Ring, ring. ” Hi, this is Kaiser Permanente, the largest managed care organization in the United States and we’re conducting a study. We were just wondering if those anti-depressant medications, antibiotics, and or cardiovascular medications you might have taken while you were pregnant gave your child birth defects or caused any perinatal problems?”
A new research program called the Medication Exposure in Pregnancy Risk Evaluation Program (MEPREP) will fund research to study the effects of prescription medications used during pregnancy. The program is a collaboration among the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and researchers at the HMO Research Network Center for Education and Research in Therapeutics (CERT), Kaiser Permanente’s multiple research centers and Vanderbilt University.
Collectively, the 11 participating sites have health care information for about 1 million births over the past seven years (2001-2007). Many of the mothers associated with these births likely used medication during their pregnancies and now, with the program in place, the FDA and participating researchers have a systematic and timely way of retrieving information from this network. http://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/PressAnnouncements/ucm195934.htm
Did any pregnant mom systematically give permission to have their data used in this study? Was there “informed consent,” that prescription data could be used in future studies? We realize this is probably just an aggregate of data from various clinics, but everyone of those patients has a name and now are being used by a group of researchers to evaluate perscriptions drugs taken while pregnant. “In 2007, Kaiser it completed the four-year implementation of the Kaiser Permanenteprescriptions HealthConnect technology system, which standardizes technology across all locations.” http://www.wetfeet.com/Employers/Kaiser-Permanente.aspx What perfect timing!
Will the study look at race, age, and socio-economic factors as well? How much do you think they know about these women? About the children?
Smoking, drinking, and drug abuse are on the list as no no’s, but why is it the FDA now only taking action? Reading the small print on most medications, including the H1N1 Swine Flu vaccines patient inserts, “product may not be safe for use during pregnancy, benefits outweighing risks, etc.”
Why is it that the FDA is procuring this study as opposed to the pharmaceutical manufacturers themselves? Oh, that’s right- many are already released from any liability from injury -as is the case with the H1N1 vaccines. We have doubts that the outcome of this study will gain as much information as the government’s coordinated data effort which failed to reveal potential terrorists based on the events of 9-11, and as recently as on Christmas Day.
The stimulus package, officially the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, includes $8.2 billion in “extramural” NIH funding to help stimulate the U.S. economy by supporting scientific research. Kaiser Permanente has won more than $54 million in federal stimulus funding to conduct research on many public and clinical health areas, including $25 million for genetic research in Northern California. http://sanfrancisco.bizjournals.com/sanfrancisco/stories/2009/10/12/daily1.html
Taking a conspiracy twist-
Financially influenced by Rockefeller’s leading petrochemical– pharmaceutical institutions, history shows these powerful “population planners” consistently working to manage global eugenics—the science of racial hygiene and “ethnic cleansing.” Desperately seeking ways to control “excess populations,” how do you suppose they might magically disappear half of us now targeted for elimination?
Before your imagination runs wild considering my view of “Vaccine Magic,” consider Kaiser’s history with the Rockefeller family cooperatively pioneering “managed care” in America along with the Kaiser Institute for Eugenics, Anthropology, and Human Heredity in pre-Nazi Germany. In essence, these contemporary powers spearheaded Hitler’s racial hygiene program, its genetic experiments for unnatural selection, and propaganda methods in advancing their “master race.” http://www.awakentothetruth.com/vaccine_magic_conspiracy.htm
“The Kaiser Wilhelm Institute of Anthropology, Human Heredity, and Eugenics was founded in 1927. The Rockefeller Foundation supported both the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute of Psychiatry and the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute of Anthropology, Human Heredity and Eugenics. The Rockefeller Foundation partially funded the actual building of the Institute and helped keep the Institute afloat during the Depression. In its early years, and during the Nazi era, it was strongly associated with theories of Nazi eugenics and racial hygiene advocated by its leading theorists Fritz Lenz and Eugen Fischer, and by its director Otmar von Verschuer. Under Fischer, the sterilisation of so-called Rhineland Bastards was undertaken. During World War II, the Institute regularly received human body parts, including eyes and skulls, from Dr. Josef Mengele at Auschwitz to use in studies intended to prove Nazi racial theories and justify race-related social polices. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaiser_Wilhelm_Institute_of_Anthropology,_Human_Heredity,_and_Eugenics
George Halvorson, the chief executive of one of the nation’s most respected health care systems, Kaiser Permanente, says he is hopeful that all the sausage-making in Washington will succeed in squeezing out a law….” lawmakers should support efforts to reward improvements in care for a handful of chronic conditions like asthma and heart failure, which affect millions of people and are some of the highest contributors to the nation’s health care bill. Tracking the care of those patients would be a good start, he said. “You don’t have to fix a lot of things.” http://prescriptions.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/09/22/kaiser-permanentes-chief-optimistic-about-health-overhaul-effort/
A handful of chronic conditions, eh? Is being pregnant considered chronic. Maybe for the Digger’s family! Oh wait, how do drug companies make money if a patient doesn’t take them? Could the underlying reason for this study really be linked back to The Kaiser Institute for Eugenics, Anthropology, and Human Heredity?
Could there be a link to other well known institutions? In 1904, the Carnegie Institution established a laboratory complex at Cold Spring Harbor on Long Island that stockpiled millions of index cards on ordinary Americans, as researchers carefully plotted the removal of families, bloodlines and whole peoples.

Elluminati’s blog takes the conspiracy farther in thinking that Kaiser has a connection to the three pillars of masonic ritual. Pointing out the 3 pillars (sizes) of the Doctors, and the 3 dots of the Kaiser Permanente logo.

HCUPnet is part of the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). HCUPnet generates statistics using data from HCUP’s Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS), the Kids’ Inpatient Database (KID), and the State Inpatient Databases (SID). These databases and HCUPnet would not be possible without the statewide data collection projects that provide data to HCUP. You can purchase many HCUP databases to do more detailed analysis not possible through HCUPnet. For more information on purchasing HCUP data go to the HCUP Central Distributor Web site at http://www.hcup-us.ahrq.gov/tech_assist/centdist.jsp

You didn’t think your or your children’s patient data was really confidential did you? Have a baby, pay the bills, they collect the money and the data, get tax dollars to subsidize the data, and they can still sell your data.
Might as well just get an RFID chip now and get it over with.
