"Protecting the Privacy and Security of Health Information"

South Carolina Business Magazine

March 1, 2013

Attorney Jeanne Born wrote about security concerns involving health care information in the March-April edition of South Carolina Business.  Born's article was entitled "Protecting the Privacy and Security of Health Information."

An excerpt:

The simple truth is three-fold.  First, there are a lot of very smart and savvy people in information technology who find ways to hack in and get the information they want. Second, it is costly to develop and implement the procedures and technology that are necessary to protect information.  Third, the highly complex legal framework that is designed to protect our most sensitive and private information is not sufficient.  This includes health care information.
