Title: Not even a Fig Leaf for Privacy: American’s Health IT Systems and Data Exchanges

Complexity, legacy architectures divorced from privacy rights, a powerful health data mining industry, government interest in health data, and $27 billion in federal funding have created a health IT environment based on open access to 300 million people’s most sensitive  personal information and the elimination of individual privacy rights. Patient Privacy Rights’ role is to be the voice of the public, to educate decision makers, and to create a movement to build innovative health IT systems worthy of trust.
