Why HIPAA doesn't always provide the best outcomes:

Confidentiality is not all that it seems. I have a love - hate relationship right now with confidentiality or otherwise known within the medical space as HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act). This US law, enacted on August 21, 1996 was designed to protect a patient's medical records or other health related information. When HIPAA was established, one goal was to protect the safety and security of individual health information.
