Feature Story on Patient Data Privacy Breaches in Colorado Spring Newspaper

If you are interested in what the general public is reading about patient data privacy breaches, The Gazette of Colorado Springs has a feature article on medical records snooping.

This is a follow-up to their story about the city nurse who was caught snooping on 2,500 patient records.

Here is one of the many interesting quotes in the article.
"When personally identifiable health information is disclosed to an employer, insurer, or family member, for example, the disclosure can result in stigma, embarrassment, and ... and/or other psychologically harmful results." - "Beyond the HIPAA Privacy Rule: Enhancing Privacy, Improving Health Through Research" by the Institute of Medicine
What are your thoughts on how this issue is presented to the general public?
