The HIPAA Paradox



“HIPAA is often described as a privacy rule. It is not. In fact, HIPAA is a disclosure regulation, and it has effectively dismantled the longstanding moral and legal tradition of patient confidentiality.”

. . .In effect, HIPAA functions as a Trojan horse in breaching the edifice of medical confidentiality: it erodes ethics and lulls doctors and patients into thinking they have privacy protections.”
