Health Breach Notification Rulemaking
The privacy of medical records is an important issue for each of us. The FTC estimates that there will be about eleven breaches of medical record security and privacy per year. These are only unauthorized breaches. Numerous parties will also be authorized to access our personal medical records. Protection for medical records should be as comprehensive as possible. I do not want my information available or shared with upwards of 900 entities without my specific consent to each and every viewing. Therefore, I want the ability to opt out of the system in an easy straight forward manner. Presently, this option is not available to the American public and it needs to be added. Thank you for your consideration.
