Health Breach Notification Rulemaking
It is reprehensible to think in this day and age, there are unscrupulous individuals who will consider releasing patients' health information for personal gain, edification or revenge. This is especially true as it relates to high-profile individuals. When it comes to matters that are of a most personal and sensitive nature regarding one's health, it is beyond reasonable to expect this information would be cautiously and clearly guarded from willful or mistaken release by anyone who could realize any type of gain. Patients have a right to expect privacy and know when records are purposely or inadvertently released without their consent.
