Seems there is much more to this story than first meets the eye. THe HIPAA regulations unintended consequences include the price that healthcare providers pay to suffer claims such as this made with either “no comment” or “disagree and if they follow the letter of the law are unable to comment because of patient privacy regulations.

Is patient privacy….patient privacy…….no matter the consequences or are there times and ways to address issues without jeopardizing patient privacy and patient information.

THere is no easy answer but it does expose another instance where we create regulations with good intentions but end up with unfortunate and undesirable consequences
