Jim Cramer's Thoughts on Google's Project Nightingale, and Impeachment Hearings

Jim Cramer weighs in on Real Money stock of the day Google's Project Nightingale, the impeachment hearings, and Cisco's earnings.

Project Nightingale Google's project to collect health data on millions of patients without their or their doctor's knowledge is drawing scrutiny from federal regulators, The Wall Street Journal reported.

The so-called Project Nightingale project between Alphabet's Google unit and hospital operator Ascension, the country's second-largest health system, gained attention Tuesday after the Journal reported the data was being collected without patient knowledge or consent.

Ascension, without notifying patients or doctors, has begun sharing with Google personally identifiable information on millions of patients, such as names and dates of birth; lab tests; doctor diagnoses; medication and hospitalization history; and some billing claims and other clinical records, according to the Journal.

Yesterday, Cramer said that an article that details a project such as Google's Project Nightingale, aims to get the government's attention.

And, now it has, as there are reports that the office of Civil Rights at the Department of Health and Human Services launched a probe of the project, the Wall Street Journal reported late Tuesday.

The investigation "will seek to learn more information about this mass collection of individuals' medical records to ensure that HIPAA protections were fully implemented," director Roger Severino said in a statement.

Cisco Earnings Cisco reports earnings after the bell Wednesday.

The company, which is held in Cramer's Action Alerts PLUS portfolio, will be covered extensively in Cramer's Action Alerts PLUS monthly members-only call, which takes place right after TheStreet's Facebook Live show.
