David: One component of Data Breeches that you did not comment upon is those breaches that do not occur at the provider faciilty and staff level. As a consultant for the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association in 1994 and 1995 it was routine to access and use Hillary Clinton's Health Insurance Records to introduce staff to the National Accounts Claim System. I recall what I was shown in her insurance claims but will not share it. I was horrified. If health professionals have difficulty keeping their mouths shut and maintaining confidentiality, imagine the mountain 3rd party insurance payors must climb with simple claims examiners looking at records. Sure there are by now changes in policy in place but just imagine. Stephen Giles Dailey, FACHE 3729 Rhetts Landing Belleville, IL 62221
