Here is one of the most interesting comments made by speakers at the "2nd International Summit on the Future of Health Privacy" organized by Patient Privacy Rights .

All 40 leading health-privacy experts at the conference in Washington, DC supported the thesis that the stakes are high when it comes to electronic medical records and privacy.
"Electronic technology is a game changer, legally, because the damage that can be done to someone is perpetual and the damages that can be awarded are incalculable." - James Pyles of law firm Powers, Pyles, Sutter, & Verville
