FEMA and HIPAA: Here's
an interesting story (actually, a cached version, since it's off the website) from the Sarasota Herald-Tribune on issues FEMA is having with HIPAA. FEMA is afraid of improperly disclosing PHI, so it's not notifying other agencies that provide assistance to elderly Florida residents where FEMA has relocated those residents. It is certainly a balancing act, and HIPAA certainly causes some to overly weight one side of the scale.
