HHS Officers Grilled on Capitol Hill:
As reported by BNA
(subscription required), the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Privacy, Technology and the Law called up a group of HHS officers to question them on medical privacy breaches and the number of prosecutions. The Senators felt that HHS isn't doing enough, because there aren't enough prosecutions going on. The risk raised by increasing the footprint of electronic records was noted.
