In the three years since Americans gained federal protection for their private medical information, the Bush administration has received thousands of complaints alleging violations but has not imposed a single civil fine and has prosecuted just two criminal cases.
Of the 19,420 grievances lodged so far, the most common allegations have been that personal medical details were wrongly revealed, information was poorly protected, more details were disclosed than necessary, proper authorization was not obtained or patients were frustrated getting their own records.
We’ve invested a huge amount of time, resources, and money with Hello Health to make it a highly robust and secure platform. We obviously have to. It’s healthcare. The difference with Hello Health is that we put the patient in the driver’s seat. Each individual patient decides who is able to see and contribute to their medical information.
It simply makes sense considering it’s your information.
We don’t have to rely on an unenforced, bureaucratic, joke of a law to guide our policies. We simply built the highest level security possible because we respect people.
