This should concern everyone no matter who you are because ObamaCare snagged a lot of money from Medicare to build a massive connected medical records computer database. Remember Hillary Clinton's FBIgate where as a First Lady she had her security guy pull the paper FBI files on her enemies? The same HIllary Clinton that as Secretary of State told her aides to steal the credit card numbers of our allies and enemies so she could dig dirt up on them (Wiki leaked this and Obama forced Hillary to apologize.) Remember the bureucrats that snooped into Obama, Palin and others passport information during the campaign? Do you want your medical records in a giant government data base subjected to the eyes of millions of bureucrats and medical staff and even other countries? (IRS contracted some of our income tax returns to India).
Three employees at Tucson's University Medical Center have been fired for violating patient privacy in connection with accessing confidential medical records in the high-profile shooting rampage that killed six people and left Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in critical condition, hospital officials said. All the remaining injured patients from the shootings, including Giffords, are at UMC. "The hospital has terminated three clinical support staff members this week for inappropriately accessing confidential electronic medical records, in accordance with UMC's zero-tolerance policy onpatient privacy violations," says a statement issued by UMC officials this morning. A contracted nurse also was terminated by the nurse's employer, officials say, and the families of the affected patients were notified. Hospital spokeswoman Katie Riley would not say how many patients were affected. Hospital officials stressed they are not aware of any confidential patient information being released publicly. "Any potential breaches of patient privacy by UMC staff will be investigated and appropriately addressed," a hospital news release says. "With advances in technology, ensuring patient privacy has become the focus of hospitals nationwide. UMC uses sophisticated technology to help prevent and detect inappropriate access to patient information." http://azstarnet.com/news/local/crime/article_4f789a48-1e8c-11e0-929a-001cc4c002e0.html
