The Government in its crusade to protect us from evil has singled out the business community, by demanding the creation of a gargantuan beaurocracy to control PHI. While several of the ideas are worthy of consideration the whole proposal/regulation is overly burdensome, hugely expensive and wasteful of limited resources (Anybody remember MLR limits). I have yet to see effective action against the thieves who steal and use this information where the real effort needs to be. For those familiar with history, and it seems this group gets smaller all the time, this is a Maginot Line approach to keeping PHI safe which can just as easily be breached as that folly to defensive strategies was. Any wonder the economy is frozen in place with so much effort being channeled into complying with the plethora of rules and regulations pouring from our every expanding government.
