UCLA - "We had a lax culture around patient privacy..."

Don't miss this in depth article on how the UCLA Health System used a series of very public data breaches as a wake-up call for the health system and how it has dramatically changed in response.
"We had a very, very lax culture around privacy, and because we happened to treat an A-list of celebrities, it got national attention. But the reality was we were sloppy not only with celebrities, but also with a nurse looking at another nurse's records to see if she was really sick yesterday. That was our culture."

David Feinberg, MD, MBA, who became UCLA Health System CEO in 2007
