End of the "Harm" standard?
As I predicted below
, the NYT times implies
that the reason the final Breach Notification Rule was pulled from publication is to remove the "harm" standard. Of course, it's a ridiculously editorialized "news" article. Just can't play it straight, can they? Has to be a good Democrat, evil Republican/hospital/insurance company story. . . . Most doctors like having the "harm" standard, but they don't fit the "evil" mode for the NYT.
Actually, if they pull the "harm" standard, they'll probably have to allow comment and delay final enforcement.
