Not Just HealthNet:
the Connecticut AG
goes after Griffin Hospital because a radiologist on staff was a snooper. This is, I believe, a good indicator of the biggest potential game changer in HITECH: the ability of state AGs to be the new "HIPAA police."
UPDATE: More here
. Looks like a departed radiologist used other folks' passwords
to access the PACS system. Also sounds like the hospital acted quickly and appropriately.
Hat tip: Dom Nicastro.
